How We can Help - Ivy Removal

Give us a call if you have an Ivy problem. You may just need it pruning back, or you may require complete removal. We are qualified in the lawful application of herbicides. We are also licensed waste carriers meaning that the plant will be disposed of in a bio secure way to spread further nuisance growth.

On smaller projects we work from ladders or mobile platforms. With large removal jobs on buildings, scaffolding may need to be erected for health and safety reasons. On occasions we also use abseiling as an aid to removing ivy.

The main arteries should be cut close to were they emerge from the ground. Suitable herbicide should be applied to the cut areas to help kill the root system if complete is required. The herbicide can be brushed on, injected or a herbicidal plug can be used. Root systems can also be dug out. The fresh ivy is then cruelly pulled from the wall, using a scraper to gentle remove embedded tendrils and suckers.

Word of warning: Ivy is a survivor and a very persistent plant. It is resistant to herbicidal treatment and the root systems will go under brick walls. This makes the plant very difficult it remove completely and follow up visits are recommended.

Please note that the Wild Life and Country Side Act states that nesting birds cannot be disturbed. This means that ivy removal projects are put on hold until the nesting season is over.
