How do I get rid of a plant?

Please help me, I have a ground covering, small dark leaved with red berries plant that has ground massively and the roots have now imbedded themselves into the soil and under paving slabs. How can I get the roots out please as I need to lay a new patio. Just realised, i think the plant is either a prostrate or creeping juniper



You will have to physically dig it out , if it is as you describe.

Put SBK weedkiller on the foliage, wait a couple of weeks, it should be dead.
