Keep your eyes pealed! Are “pretty ivy plants” showing up in your lawn? These “pretty plants” have frequently been used as a medicinal plant throughout history. Now, ground ivy is considered a perennial weed with creeping stems that sprawl all over. They form a thick leafy mat across turf-grass. Because of this, the “mat” tends to crowd out other plants. And…it is a nuisance when it comes to your lawn. Its creeping stems will spread all over your lawn if you do not act and act quickly. This is a highly aggressive growing plant. It will quickly invade areas of your lawn if not controlled. Therefor, treatment of this type of ivy requires quick action (we cannot stress this enough).
Treatment of ground ivy plants require constant and careful attention. These highly invasive weeds will quickly invade turf-grass. They have stems that can be several feet long. The entire plant stem must be treated and killed. If this weed is not properly controlled, it will continue to invade your lawn. Make sure to check all flower beds and surrounding areas for signs. Flower beds need to be cleared out to avoid spread. Neighboring lawns can spread ivy as well. This will lead to property edges needing constant maintenance.
