Ivy is a superb feature for your garden and can add to the aesthetics of your home, but like most climbers they require regular maintenance. Structural elements of your property such as brickwork, paintwork and guttering can get damaged if ivy is left to grow out of control, and could leave you with a big repair bill.
It can also damage drains, window frames, rendering, soffits and roof tiles, as well as strangling other plants and trees.
Problems Caused by Ivy
- Wooden window frames are susceptible to damage
- Rendering can become weak, crack and even fall off
- Brickwork, joints and cement beds can weaken
- Weather proofing such as roof tiles and soffits can get compromised
- Ivy competes with trees, shrubs and plants for space
