how can get rid of ivy



Where is it? If its growing up something you can cut it off at the base and treat any regrowth with deep root weed killer. Try putting a drop of washing up liquid in the solution to help it to stay on the leaves. If you leave the stems on the tree for a year and then pull them off they make wonderful firelighters!

If its growing in the ground just pull off the long trails keep on digging it up. Its a long job if you have a lot! But if you want to take them to the tip don't leave them in the car boot for long because they STINK and the car will smell for ages afterwards! I guess if its on the ground ith nothing else around it you could use the weedkiller on that too. Good luck with it!
