I am concerned that the yukkas may damagae the house and the concrete paths, am I concerned over nothing? Thankyou for the tie you take to answer.

Hi Alannah, In general Yuccas’ roots pose no great problems for houses. If the path is well built, it should be OK too. Only a thin, fragile path will be at risk. Without a photo I can’t tell you much more. Don
