What is the most efficient way to trim ivy that is growing on a chain link fence? This stuff grows pretty fast and is a pain to trim.

I've seen people use weed whackers to trim ivy but this could be dangerous if people or pets are in the vicinity. How about using an electric hedge trimmer and taking the ivy back to within 6-8 inches of the fence each spring? It should keep the ivy under control. Hope so!
