The Q&A Archives: Killing Ivy

Question: I recently ripped down the ivy that had reached the third floor level outside my house. By doing this, it left brown lines and the brown little "suckers" imbedded in the stucco wall. The wall now looks terrible. I started to have it power-washed, only to find out the stucco was coming off so we did not continue. Is there anything short of painting over it, that would allow me to remove the vines and suckers? Am I stuck with this forever?

Answer: Unfortunately, I do not know of a safe method to remove the traces of the vine from stucco or brick. I'm sorry I can't be more helpful.
