English Ivy


melcooke81 added on May 28, 2016 | Answered

My family and I recently bought a house. The previous owners planted English Ivy in the backyard but failed to maintain it. My issue is that behind our backyard fence is a city owned unmaintained lot of trees which the Ivy has taken over. We are currently digging it out of our yard but would like to know the best way to prevent it from migrating back from the city lot. How deep do the root systems go? Thank you.
