Surrey, United Kingdom
A young niece of mine has just moved into a house that has been left derelict for five years and is in process of being re-furbished - inside and out.
The back garden is of some concern: It appears that it has become overgrown with ivy, which is rooted deeply into the earth and is preventing any lawn/grass growing.
The ivy is quite strong and is not easily torn up by raking/pulling.
Can you please advise the best way to recover this area?
Your help would be much appreciated. (Sorry, I forgot that you might need a photo.)
