Neighbor's English Ivy Coming Over the Fence

We and the neighbor to the south of us got rid of all of our English ivy. The neighbor to the east did not, and it keeps climbing under and over the fence into our yard. The city says there is no ordinance to make him take out his ivy or prevent it from coming over and under the fence. Any ideas on how I can prevent it, as a one time solution, from coming over and under the fence. We are looking for a permanent solution, not something we have to do all of the time. The way we got rid of it was to pull it out completely roots and all, which was very labor intensive.

I'm assuming you've spoken with the neighbour about his/her unruly ivy, and he/she was unconcerned?

If your city isn't going to help you out with this, you are going to have to resign yourself to a lifelong routine of trimming it back every time you see it popping over/through/under the common fence.

You can't hit it with an herbicide like RoundUp because even though it would permanently take care of the problem (by killing the ivy back to the roots) your neighbour would likely sue you for killing their plants.

Spray it with hot salt water on your side of the fence
