Ivy out of control

Posted: 18/10/2013 at 14:38

my neighbours had this on their walls.. and they dont really do gardening (wondered why bought such a big plot if not into it) anyway.. they had the ivy coming in inbetween the windows and the wall indoors.. i couldnt believe how it creeps in...

but yes the house along road did as suggested.. they were covered up all over the roof also.. when they brough the house.. and they cut the basal stems and let it die down natural first.
