Getting aerial ivy roots off brick

Posted: 02/09/2012 at 13:46

thanks for suggestions, will keep trying.  I do agree that ivy and brickwork don't mix, and am trying to resist the urge to grow the ivy back again to cover up the mess!  If anyone has any ideas of anything that will dissolve the root fragments chemically i'd be very interested indeed.

Does anyone know how to remove aerial ivy roots from (modern) brickwork.   We successfully killed roots of very overgrown ivy, then after a few months pulled the hefty growth off the house walls only to find we can't shift the remaining 'shredded wheat' type aerial roots.  We've tried scraping, scrubbing etc all to no avail.  This was three years ago, and they are still hanging on.  Help!!
