Q.virginia creeper

Zone salina ks | Anonymous added on October 26, 2018 | Answered

i have a very mature virginia creeper that has been growing all over our neighbors garage that faces our property and am in love with it!….well he had his landscapers come over and tear it all off the garage – they didn’t mess with the root – but they did cut it all back to the ground – it has a lot of trails that are down in the ground on our side of the garage – will it come back this coming spring you think or will it take a few years to climb back up? i am so upset!

Your neighbor is within his rights to prune anything that comes over the property border. Some states have laws about pruning if it is going to jeopardize a tree's existence. Your Virginia creeper will come back; I have no doubts about that. Can you give it something to climb on your side of the property like a tree or chain link fence.? A trellis is no match for Virginia creeper unless you prune regularly but a pergola would work. Keep it pruned so it doesn't wander back to your neighbor's property; it is a simple task and preserves good relationships. Perhaps it is time to relocate the creeper?
