OK, things keep rolling to me at this condo complex I've become involved with. First it was a complete weeding and pruning of the 66 unit site which hadn't been done all year. Second was placing about 11 yards of mulch. Now the next concern is the Ivy Ground cover. So here's where I'm at with asking you guys. This place is overrun with Ivy. It's 1-2 feet up vinyl siding and brick, some places three feet. All the first floor units have about a 4 x 12 patio in front and the ivy is on every patio, some are completely covered. There is some spots with HVAC lines and cable lines so I can't whack attack those or anything with the vinyl siding. What method of removal should I use? All hand pruning? And there I would assume to cut it a foot or so from anything it's climbing up now? What should I charge? Should I bid it or per hour and if by hour does Ivy warrant 50-60 dollars an hour? I'll be able to dispose of the waste on the property So far I removed 8 30 gallon bags of weeds and filled a yard waste dumpster halfway with prunings for a bid of $350 in 6 hours. I placed 11 yards of mulch for $550 in 7 hours. Also this place is real unhappy with their current contractor (obviously why I'm doing the work) and there's a total of 26 properties in upper-end neighborhoods that this management company oversees. So any thoughts, tips and ideas would be wholeheartedly appreciated!
