How do you get rid of a bed of English ivy?
English ivy is difficult to eliminate once it becomes established. If you're concerned that other nearby plants might be injured by treatment with a chemical, try repeated hand pulling, digging, and mowing instead. This will be hard work and will take persistence. If you use an herbicide, choose a brush killer. Repeat applications are often necessary. Check and follow label directions for use.
