An engine hoist (machine hoist) is easily rent-able.
Rent yourself one, and get a tow strap, really sturdy rope or thick chain. This sounds difficult. It’s not. Once you have the formula down, it’s repeat, repeat, repeat until you’ve accomplished your goal.
So go on, take the challenge. Replace those dated shrubs. I know you can do it.
Come back for part 2, the fun part. Re-planting.
