Re: ivy


I planted Ivy years ago on a south fence and a few feet in from the fence.
It has taken over the fence.  It does try to come up in the lawn a bit, but
is easy to just lift out.  It travels south so it is more my neighbor's
problem, but he doesn't seem to care.  However, The neighbor to my north
also planted ivy on her southern boundary and it travels under my north
fence and keeps invading that side.  I'm constanty ripping it out to try to
keep it at bay.  I have however let it travel down the easment behind my
yard as it heads south.  The easment otherwise has all sorts of weeds and
poisonous nightshade and such, so I figure the ivy can bully them out.
