Ivy as a Ground Cover
I want to get rid of my grass/weeds over a 6 x 30 ft area. I assume I have to till, but is there any specific preparation I should utilize before planting the ivy?

It never hurts to add compost or composted manure to an area where you will be tilling and making a new bed. Other than that, the ivy should do fine without anything extra being added to the soil. Make sure to keep it well watered for the first month or so to help it get established.
