you should also do it to gooseberry bushes to stop sawfly,they dont like the space or air that circulates if you do this,I have just done mine and it does help,having had a very bad bout of sawfly on them some two years ago.

I have similar problem with one of the gardens(in fact there are 5 gardens in all that run into mine and all are problem)that the person in question has lost interest and does no gardening hence I have a huge Rhododendron growing up my hawthorn tree and allsorts of over grown bushes and shrubs.We just lean over and hack at it ever so often but unless we get really nasty (which  one wouldnot want to) there is not a lot else.I chop off what comes over and pull the ivy away,annoying.
