How Do You Kill Ivy?
Sorry. I'm sure that this question has been asked before and I tried to find the answer in search but I got a gazillion hits and just don't have all day to read them all.
We recently moved into a new house and a fair 50% of our property is covered in ivy. It's a chore just to keep it "under control." We'd also like the space consumed by it to plant beneficial edibles like fruit trees and bushes, grain, etc.
Is there a way to get rid of this stuff? It appears to have been here for a very long time.
