Getting rid of Poison Ivy without killing trees/plants???
We just purchased a house in the winter and this summer discovered we have poison ivy in just about all of our flower beds.
Because we live in a semi-wooded area with hills, several of our flower beds are all ground cover so the poison ivy is in many places inter-mingled in the ground cover. In other places it is growing in our flower beds, tangled in bushes, or growing up our dogwood tree.
How do we get rid of the poison ivy without killing our groundcover/trees/flowers/bushes, etc.? My husband and I are extreamly sensitive to poison ivy and have already gotten it once this year so bad that we had to go to the doctor (both of us had it all over, including our faces).
We are planning on starting a family and since the poison is all over our yard we want to try and get rid of most of it before we have children getting exposed to it.
