    I will soon be bidding on a bed reno job which will entail removing existing ground cover (euoyonomous), prepping, then planting with ivy.

    My question is this, What is the recommended rate of install for ivy....I.E. # of flats, or should I say plants per sqare foot. I realize this can vary depending on how full the customer would like the bed to start, but any ballpark figures would be somewhat helpful.

    Also what is a common rate of growth for baltic ivy?

    The bed area I would say (haven't measured yet) is roughly 750 sq ft.

    Thanks for any help...
