Cut through any ivy at the base of your wall. Cut a gap in the stem a good 6" apart, as long as it's not just a cut to seperate, as it can heal itself., leave it to die off before pulling it away. It's less likely to pull out any mortar if it's dead. Just before spraying with round up etc, bash the leaves with rake, stick anything to bruise the leaves so the round up is absorbed better.
