English ivy (Hedera helix) is now considered invasive on both the Atlantic and Pacific coastal areas of the United States. In many cases, the best treatment that can be done is to contain and prevent it from escaping from cultivated yards and gardens. Because all ivy vines have similar growth habits, you can apply English ivy removal steps to eradicating other types of ivy as well.
Install a physical barrier around the planting area. Use sheet aluminum or galvanized steel. Bury it so it extends at least 12 to 18 inches down from the surface of the soil to block the roots from traveling outside of the growing bed.
Remove faded flowers and any berries that form, as they contain seeds. The birds eat the berries and spread the seeds all over your property.
