Best Ways to Kill ivy on fence

1

Vinegar

Vinegar can desiccate plants and is the best natural solution for unwanted ivy. Pour the vinegar in a spray bottle and carefully spray it on the ivy only. The vinegar when applied to plants can dissolve the cell membranes and cause them to wilt. Wait a few days and see if the ivy is dying. You can spray it again in a few days to speed up the wilting process.

Glyphosate Weed Killer

Before you apply the glyphosate weed killer you need to make sure that you don’t kill the ivy stuck on the fence. Gently start pulling out the ivy a day or two before you apply the weed killer. Apply the chemical to the roots of the ivy and let the ivy die eventually. Make sure that the ivy is not stuck inside the fence so that it is easy to remove later when it’s dry.

Cut the Ivy

To let the ivy dry up on its own, you need to cut it from everywhere so that portions of it start dying. Killing at the roots is the best way to kill ivy but the ivy can still look fresh and last for weeks or months. Cutting every stem that you can get a hold of means that you ruin the plant and cut the food and water supply which dries the ivy in a week or two.

Mark the Base Roots

Killing the ivy can take some time especially if you haven’t been paying attention to the plants growing on your lawn for a while. It can get very messy and identifying which plat’s roots are where can be a difficult job. To effectively get rid of ivy you need some time to figure out which roots belong to ivy and mark them. Once you have marked all the roots, you can apply weed killer to them, cut them or pull them out of the ground. The ivy situation may vary depending on how long it has been growing unchecked, but the sooner you get rid of it, the better.

Salt and Water

Saltwater is the worst enemy of every plant because it targets the plant’s vascular system. Pour some saltwater on ivy to wilt the ivy within days. For convenience fill up a water bottle with 5-8 teaspoons of salt and water. Spray generously on the ivy and watch what happens!
