Default What in hell will kill IVY

I have tried round up and everything else but at my office my dear old deceased Grandmother years ago planted IVY. I have an older gentleman that works pretty cheap but it is almost impossible for him to keep it cut back. I have it in several areas around my office

Anybody got ideas on what will kill it, LEGALLY ;?;?;?

Have been told to spray diesel fuel on it but not too sure about that

Poison Ivy killer. Worked like a charm for me. One problem. It'll kill EVERYTHING -- including small trees. It's heavy duty.

I mix poison ivy killer with roundup. The thing is it will come back. You need to kill the root system or pull the root system up.

I've had pretty good success killing most any kind of weed by simply spraying it with paint thinner through a garden sprayer. You've probably already got some around spay some as a sample and observe for the results...

Round up once, pull it out when it looks dead and if any more sprouts hit it agin with the round up. I have never had to do it more than twice.

I use double or triple strength Round Up. Sometimes takes two applications, but it does work. Timing of application is important with Round Up. For best results, you need to apply it in full sun on a warm day. Applying it in the evening doesn't seem to work nearly as well.

I think on a hot sunny day the plant soaks any moisture, so i agree that is the best time to use roundup

Ground Kill,works on everything,name says it all.
After running out after the first time I bought it,went to
Lowes or HD and asked for it.
Guy in lawn and garden asked what it was called and I
said I don't know something like ground kill.
He insisted he had never heard of it but led me to chemicals,
first bottle he saw he commented "wow" says Ground Kill
right on bottle.
Kills for up to 1 year.

Round up works but if I recall correctly, you have to kill it at the edges and keep soaking it around edges every 4-6 days especially on warm, bright, sunny days when the plants are trying to grow the most. We had tons of it several years ago and that was the only way to control it.

it wont come back, and eventually the salt will dissolve

Get a brush and ivy killer that you mix in a sprayer. Make the solution twice as strong by adding half the water per ounce of poison. Run a weedeater through the ivy on a nice warm, dry day. Hack it up pretty good. Then spray it down with the poison. It may take 2 or 3 attempts but that will kill it. I tried without taking the weedeater to it to no avail. The weedeater made a big difference.

you have to buy the concentrated round up and mix it with 1/3 the water.
