Clearing a Neglected Yard of Ivy and Blackberries

I used to be a professional gardener. My friend's back yard has plum and apricot trees, but they are neglected and I am trying to maintain the lawn. The ivy is climbing the trees and the blackberries have taken over about 60% of the yard. What do I do about this?

I scraped away a large section of bark and painted on concentrated Roundup with a paint brush. Also painted it on leaves. Also did this with trumpet vines.
