So, Sean and I decided to tackle this project today. We clipped, we pulled, we dug, we used wire cutters and we swatted the swarms of gnats that were landing on our sweaty faces.
One particular fence post was difficult to remove since whoever did it, sunk it in cement. So we dug a big hole all around it and took the hammer to the cement. While pushing the fence post back and forth, it actually snapped off - luckily it snapped below the surface of the ground, so we just threw back in the rocks and covered it with dirt.
The next round, I will continue to clip back the ivy. (have I said how much I HATE IVY).
The question is, what to plant on the slope?
My yard is to the right, neighbor's to the left. See ivy on lower left, and growing up Bradford Pear tree (another yucky tree but my neighbor likes it)
The slope is in my yard. I need a non-invasive ground cover for the slope.
