golf course view...sort of


In the past, I've jumped the fence and cut back the weeds/plants on the golf course side, until last year when I got a nasty case of poision ivy. We are the only house that I can see who has an obstructed view. I called the county club complaining about the poision ivy coming and they sprayed. Is there anything I can use to effectively eliminate these weeds/plants? I am unable to upload a pic at this moment.

Roundup makes a tough brush and poison ivy killer.

Be careful with overspray though. It will kill almost any vegetation it comes into contact with.

Other options are digging roots out.

How about getting the golf course to repeat several sprays?

I know, but I had to make 5 calls and wait a month before they would spray once.

Looks like you have little ones there. It's a far better choice to dig it up rather than to spray. Wear long sleeves, pants & gloves to avoid contact with poison ivy. Sorry Kap & downunder, I'm strongly against using any kind of chemicals. They seep into the earth & we end up consuming it. Good luck & God Bless!
