Cut Down a Virginia Creeper

hbobbi10 added on July 21, 2015 | Answered

Can you completely cut down a Virginia Creeper that has a stem base of over 1-2? I have a Virginia Creeper growing up and over my front deck. I would like to paint the front deck and house but will need to cut down the vine for the painters. I love this plant there and would like to keep it growing there. When is the best time of the year to do this?
