Right this is the third time I have tried replying to the posts however my last two have not shown up for some reason. I hope this works!!

Thank you all for your replys!

Mogsby - The area is around 40 meters by 10 meters and yes it is fenced off.

Hollie Hock - I eventually plan to have a vegetable patch and grass part of it. I also plan to have a hard standing area for a glasshouse and a patio set.

Ladybird4 - Actually this is the second time I have cut everything back and yes it has all grown back. Your right. Other than soak it all with some sort of weedkiller im lost for things and ways to stop it from growing back all the time. Possibly I have to did the roots out, but how deep am I going to have to dig.

Nutcutlet - What is Glyphosate?

Flowering rose - Im afraid pigs are not a feasible option for me. But I may have to dig up the roots.

Welshonion - The ferns I have do not grow in clumps they look like plants in their own right. They grow on their own and have singular stems which grow up to about 4 feet tall. The reason I call them ferns are because the leaves at the top look like big fern leaves. The only leaves that grow are right at the top and then all you have is a long stem with nothing else growing. These die back every winter however they grow back every spring/summer. The brambles I can deal with because they only take up around 5 percent of the area.

Excuse my ignorance but what is bracken?

Thank you all for your replies. If you need any more info please let me know.

I have no idea if im even doing this right as I have never done this before. I need some advice on some land I have just purchased which I am clearing.

This land is alongside my house and has been over grown with brambles and big green ferns for many years. Last year I was sick of the way it looked so I purchased this land and cut it all back.

However..... All the green ferns have grown back and Im not sure how to get rid of them for good. Is it something Im going to have to put up with? Or is there a way of stopping them from growing back? i.e. weedkiller.

Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
