Need some ideas, other than Roundup and equivalent, actually would prefer some sort of selective herbicide so I dont kill the grass if possible. Its my own lawn.<p>Bill

Cashmere goats will eat poison ivy and not eat the grass.

Did it start growing in your lawn, or has it grown in from wild border areas? Will grow by above ground runners and below ground runners also. Most broadleaf herbicides will do the job, also any of a number of woody herbicides. <p>----------<br>Jim<br>North central Indiana

Bill - The ortho homeowner labeled Brush-B-Gone has a selective broadleaf herbicide similar to Confront (which is restricted in Connecticut). This might work. If you are licensed you can buy the Confront. I haven't checked the label, but I'm pretty sure my memory is correct.<p>----------<br>Phil Grande - Soundview Landscape Supply - http://members.aol.com/slsnursery<br>Ivy League Landscaping - http://members.aol.com/scagrider

I think Brush-B-Gone contains triclopyr but not clopyralid.

Brush-B-Gon AI is ~8% triclopyr. Wish I could still get the concentrate. Only thing seen around here for last two yrs is premixed. Have had great results with all woody weeds with it.<p><br>----------<br>Jim<br>North central Indiana<br>

Try using Gordon's Brushmaster.This is a powerful herbicide and can kill desirable vegetables, flowers, ornamental plants,shrubs,and trees. I had great success this past spring killing off poison ivy that had entwined itself on a chain link fence. The key is to spray during the active growing season of this plant and not on a windy day. Grasses that are affected by this herbicide are:carpetgrass, dichondra, St. Augustingrass, bentgrass and clovers. Good luck and happy spraying.
