    do you mean creeping charlie? Or horticultural ornamental English ivy? If the horticultural type--repeated treatments with Roundup followed by short mowing is a good bet. Cut all the main stems close to the ground if it has climbed a tree or fence.

    Round up pro.
    Or a nice mix of prosecutor and scythe tends to work nice.
    Good luck!
