That's just how it was here when we moved in - and right up to the top of the house gable!!!  All gone now

Oh gosh! That sounds rather worrying! Luckily I've never used weed killer in my life

Is there any way of killing my neighbours ivy from my side of the fence? She is a very elderly lady and the garden is unkempt I am beyond annoyed of cutting back an 8 foot section along the fence where it is growing through the panels and over the top, it is starting to damage the fence which we own and I am wondering if there is something I can put on the shoots that are growing over our side that will travel down the stem and kill it her side?

Have you read allof  this thread Amy? I think all the possibilities have been mentioned

Amy, you can't do that legally....poison or kill plants or trees in a neighbour's property. You could get sued for damages and replacement.


You've no choice but to prune back or contact your neighbour to try and find a solution. She may well be open to killing it off anyway, you just have to make sure she is in agreement over such action.

Glysophate applied intravenously will kill Ivy without a  problem, i used the same method to kill two huge and overgrown Cypress type conifers. I drilled three holes (10mm diameter) round the base of the trees and topped them up once a day with glysophate. One died within a year , the biggest, about 30ft high with almost the same spread took slightlly longer, they have yielded to my chain saw this week, hugely satisfying !

Vinegar (acetic acid) works, but it needs to be 20 percent, not the kind you get at your grocers, which is 5-6 percent. I used it on ivy last year. It needs about three days of sun to work as water washes it away.
