Your post just inspired me to get out our side gate into the woods and cut down as much as Ivy as I could that's growing up the fence from that side and towards the shed. Some is probably going under the shed, but I can't get down the gap between the fence and shed to reach it. Pulled lots of the roots up as well on the wood side near the fence.Is there such a thong as permanent weed killer? The ivy from the house behind has destroyed most of the shed, and while I can just about get to the stuff going over the fence it's the stuff rooting under that's doing the most damage.
Does salting the earth work? Can I just bung a load of salt on my side of the fence? It's a rental house so residents don't care about sorting from their side, all I can do is kill what's on mine.
Not a good idea climbing between trees and undergrowth wearing flop-flops and bare feet though! No matter how careful I tried to be the stingy nettles attacked and got me . Lesson learnt....don't be too lazy to spend a few seconds putting shoes on.
