I LIKE my ivy and have a q.
OKMy problem is the leaves that fall at this time of year. There is no leaf collection here, and I have no place to out them. Hubby and I run over what we can with the lawn mower for mulch. But the older I get the tougher a job it becomes.
1. If I simply run my lawn mower over my shaded ivy, will it come back? I did it once and it seemed to quite set it back. I'd like to mulch the leaves on it, but raking them off the ivy is murder. This would be a yearly chore.
- If I let the leaves sit in and on the ivy, will it kill the ivy? We're talking about a lot of leaves here...and I want my yard to look neat come spring.
...don't ask me to move. Hubby is willing but not until real estate is out of the toilet.
...don't ask me to rip it up. There is far too much and nothing else willingly grows. And I'm an old lady who hasn't got the money to pay someone to do it.
