Help with poison ivy infestation!
We recently bought a new house with a sizable backyard. However, I am dismayed to discover that the entire backyard is infested with poison ivy.
Last month, my DH went through with Round-Up about a month ago and basically scorched the land. And already, we are seeing new PI growth sprout forth.
Given the size of the land (about 50 x 80ft), I think it will be too difficult to pull up all the roots by hand. Since the yard is sloped and due for some leveling, I am considering filling on top of the land, then putting 3" of top soil and growing grass on top. Will this help combat the PI problem?
Please note all my neighbors have PI growing, and some of them (who don't have young children) don't do anything about it. So I think the seeds will always be floating around.
