    There is no easy way to get rid of the ivy. First pull as much as you can out along with it's runners. Then cut the rest of it back. Ivy leaves are kind of waxy so they won't be affected by glyphosate (Roundup). After cutting it back spray the remains with glyphosate. That should kill it down to the roots. But ivy is hardy and you may see it popping up again. That's when you keep pulling it out. A thick layer of mulch will also help retard it's reappearance. Good luck! I've been working at getting rid of it for years.

    Pull, pull and pull again . Get as much as you can each time and eventually most will be gone. It's so invasive and stubborn . It really takes years. Every Spring, be sure to get out there again .

    Goats and sheep love poison ivy, other wiseits recommended to pull out the underground vines, have to wear protective disposable clothing. I once used weed killer but it took a long time to kill it all.
