It was sooo over due !
Many years ago my husband removed ALL the ivy from our yard BUT we couldn't keep up with the maintenance and our neighbors ivy that kept growing under and over our fence. I was getting nutty looking at all of it on the fence and ground so husband finally hired people to dig it out. Now this is only my half of backyard and the driveway. Where you see dirt now, it was the dreaded IVY.
Now what to do about this ivy that has attached itself to our stockade fence on the neighbors side ? They LIKE growing ivy in their yard ! As you can see unfortunately over the years it has been destroying the fence.
