    Perhaps they had some damage from the cold everyone had this winter. I would wait and see if it comes back before doing anything. Some ivy can be resilient and stubborn about dying off.

    Looks like it may have been frosted. Ivy is pretty tough, it should snap out of it. Part of my front yard is covered with it, I give it a good raking each spring & fling a granular fertilizer on it right before a rain. The only problem with mine is that I need to trim it back 3-4 times a year during growing season to keep it in the bed it's growing in.

    Give it a gentle haircut. It is normal for ivy to die back and need trimming. Try a small area and see if it responds in a few weeks.

    On the opposite end of this I have ivy and hate it. Anyone have good ideas how to get rid of it? TIA!

    don't worry it will return with a vengance. You don't have to do anything I'm still working at getting rid of it. I'm going to try the vinegar, salt and soap to see if that helps to get rid of it
