Black spotting on ivy and green plant color fading

Asked August 21, 2015, 10:38 AM EDT

I have a large area of ivy growing in front of my house (approximately 4'x5') that has black spotting on the leaves as well as the fading of color from he leaves. I'm curious if you can provide advice about the issue and the remedy or remedies.
