The best way to get rid of ivy in your lawn is to pull it up repeatedly. It is almost impossible to get rid of ivy chemically. Anything that would kill the ivy would kill your lawn. If you have woody stems, you can paint glyphosate (RoundUp) on the cut woody stems when the ivy is actively growing. vw
