    I have a customer that has purcahsed a rental house. It is a 3 story unit and one side is completely covered with ivy. What is the best way to remove this.

    Should it be sprayed with roundup of sometihing and let it die back? Should it be stripped from the brick walls while alive? Will the walls need to be power washed after removal? what should I do? :confused:

    HELP !!!!!!

    Its easier to pull of if its still alive, just start at the top and pull it off to the level you want, and cut it. It will leave little dots of ivy glue on the brick, I'm pretty sure you can't get them off. But if someone else knows how, I'm listening too. Good Luck:waving:
