How to naturally get rid of Ivy?

How can I naturally get rid of IVY??? Ivy all along the fence in my backyard and goes to about 3 feet out. I absolutely despise it and I want to kill all of it and replant grass or other plants/shrubs in its place. How can I get rid of it? Naturally? I live in Deer Park, New York. Thank you!

Hi, Well if you don't want to use herbicides there aren't a lot of options. You could try smothering it by covering the whole thing with landscape fabric.
