Ivy (Ground)
 
Ok I have a customer that has ivy on the ground that they want "removed" as a meyhod to combat mosquito control. Any suggestions how to remove it? With chemicals and without

Liberty Landscaping LLC 06-18-2012 06:07 PM

She wants the roots removed to just talked to her. Anyway faster then pulling each one? Tilling and picking up the excess????

Many "three way" products claim ground ivy control but I've found them to fail nearly every time. You'll probably want something with triclopyr but I've not tried it yet. This is a good reminder for me to try it because I've got a lot of ground ivy in my lawns.

Are you licensed to apply pesticides in your state?

Liberty Landscaping LLC 06-18-2012 06:51 PM

I took the class for it and paid the fees awaiting the paper to arrive. They claim if i sent everything in and have the receipts I can. I am hoping it comes in before that. She had a company come in to combat the mosquitoes and they said get rid of the shrubs and ivy as a method to rid them. I haven't heard of it before but they are paying the bill.

And then what? Sod? Grass seed? Tilling it up might be the way to go.

Mulch she has 8 bags however far that goes I wad told... tried getting her to let me mulch everything with my mulch shot down she wants to use up hers. Will tilling make it easy to get the roots and all?

One shot of strike 3, works for me

Steve 06-19-2012 11:20 AM

Well I guess if you don't have your applicator's license yet, you could go with the tilling, landscape fabric, and then mulch.

Organic 06-19-2012 12:48 PM

Never ever till a soil, you are promoting more weed seeds. R U area and cover with mulch or soil

Strike3 is just a 3 way (2,4-D/Dicamba/MCPA), right? In my experience it just doesn't work well on ground ivy unless it's flowering and even then it mostly survives. I've tried surfactants/stickers in the mix as well.

What's your secret?
