People with ivy all over their houses

  1. My neighbour has it growing on my garage wall which is facing her garden. I go up and cut it back now and again but the wall is never dry and grows in between the felt and into the garage.

    Why anyone would want it is beyond me. Looks shit.

    Chop it off at the ground then drill a hole and pour weedkiller in it.

    Stupid bitch.

  3. Semi detached neighbour started growing it up the back of their house and it was spreading on to my house. I hacked it back and I might have accidentally killed it :oops:

    Dinnar mate. It was a wall that wasn't attached to the house, it ran along the garden. It was a while ago now like, probably just something they did at the time.

    It makes a good place for nesting seagulls to hide, where they can swoop down and nick people's Gregg's pasties and possible the odd scratter child. ;)

    I've got it on the rear perimeter. I was originally on an adjacent property and spread through.

    I know ivy is supposed to be good for nesting birds, but if it's left unchecked, it mother's and kills any other plant it attaches itself to.

    If it gets onto a building its roots can eventually work their way into the masonry requiring the ivy to be removed so repainting can be done.

  9. It was growing over onto my house high up and growing over a bedroom window. Just got sick of having to get the ladders out to keep it off the window.

    Well done.

    For future reference, Ivy isn't overly fond of bleach. Allegedly

    Once a bloke I worked with was telling me about the battle he was having with his ISP. He had no connection for about 3 weeks and both ISP and BT were denying it was their problem. He had been Mr Angry on the phone but got nowhere. Now he was going on social media and writing to industry watchdogs & newspapers etc on a crusade for internet consumers' rights. Then it was like a lightbulb went on above his heed and he said "err, do you think it might have summat to do with the fact that I cut back all the ivy on the front of the house about three weeks ago?". It turned out the daft twat had indeed sliced through his phone line.
