Removing overgrown boxwoods - LisaD - 06-09-2005

Good morning, all! I have recently purchased a house with several large boxwoods on two sides of the house. I would like to remove them, but do not wish to have them pulled up by a truck and chain, which sounds like it would tear up my grass. If I severely chain-saw them to the ground, is there something that I can do to "dissolve" the roots quickly? The boxwoods have too many trunks to shape into any kind of pretty topiary. Other suggestions on removal are welcome! I want to use the area to plant my "english cottage garden" plants.....thanks!
