Let's say you HAD to use some kind of herbicide.....
I posted some time back about my entire yard of invasive species. We're in a slow battle with it, right now focusing on the 350 sq ft of ivy in the front yard. We've been digging up the dirt, sorting out the roots, replacing the dirt, amending with compost, and putting in new plants. Here's a picture of the scene:
We've been at this for weeks. The neighbors think we're insane. Good times.
Anyway, here's my question: I'm sure some of this ivy is going to continue coming up, as well as encroach from the sides where we haven't cleared it yet. We'll be able to pull some, but we're thinking it would be good to have some sort of herbicide spray in case we can't get at the roots. We're adamantly anti-Monsanto, therefore anti-Roundup. If you HAD to use something, what would you use?
Thanks in advance!
