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?

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.

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

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?
