    @DGUtley It's too late for this year (pre emergent) but if you are looking for something natural this product works if you time it right...

    I've tried this on vining plants like regular ivy, It did stop everything else but the ivy. It was all over my barn, I put it down one spring, but it still returned. Of course, the type of ivy I'm talking about is the kind that gets into the structure of your mortar joints of your home and tears it apart.

    OOh, ooh, my boss just suggested spraying straight white vinegar on the whole offending plant. The acidity will kill the $#@! out of it...

    I like the stuff the county highway department uses. It is a superior concentration of sodium chloride, stuff you cannot buy. They spray it around traffic signs out here. The grass returns in about 7 weeks, but the ivy stays dead. Grass has a better perpetuating root bed and will eventually block the ivy from growing.

    Salt? Using the old Roman attack on Carthage?

    I never heard of that so I had to look it up and you are right. They also suggested a little Vinegar and soap to make it stick.

    Concentrated Salt and Water Weed Control

    Bring 2 cups of water to a rolling boiling, remove from heat and add 1 cup of salt stirring until the salt dissolves. Any type of salt will work since all salt acts as a dehydrator to kill the weeds. Using everyday table salt is the cheapest -- yet still effective -- way to go when using salt and water as a weed control. Another option is to mix 1 cup of salt with 4 cups of white vinegar and 1/2 teaspoon dish soap. Choose a dish soap that does not contain bleach, fragrance or a degreaser. Adding dish soap to the mixture helps the liquid stick to the plant instead of simply running off the weed. If you have a large area you want to treat, boil 1 gallon of water and stir in 1 pound of salt until dissolved.

    That's a real car killer.

    In PA, each lawn is a variety of everything -- whatever will grow and remain green without being watered. Quite a variety of plants qualify. No idea what they are.
