Ivy Dies Back in August?

I have two identical ivy plants on opposite sides of my yard. They both receive several hours of afternoon sunshine. Every August the one ivy shrivels up and dies practically overnight and the other one is healthy all summer. The dying one looked as healthy as the other one up till a week ago. Can anyone tell me why this might be happening?

The dead vines maybe choking others.The top of your fence seems to get a lot of sun, verses the middle gets half and half, they like that.Not having such direct sun light!

We have ivy on the side of our house, much to my dismay. I have noticed that the part where we have terrible drainage the ivy dies off fast and the place where the drainage is good, the ivy is healthy as healthy can be. I know they hate having "wet feet". Maybe it is a drainage issue and the one that is dying has wet feet.

August is the hottest month of the year. The sun may be much stronger where the ivy is dying.
