Problems Ivy can cause
Ivy is an invasive, woody plant that is considered a climber. It has aerial roots that grow along its stems, which means that they climb upwards and outwards. Its tendrils, or roots, cling tightly to fences and walls. When it comes to ivy removal, these tendrils are left behind, creating a rather unsightly mess.
Some of the problems that ivy can make include that it:
- Strangles other trees and plants
- Provides a natural habitat for pests such as bugs and rodents
- Damages wooden structures such as window frames and doors
- Causes brickwork discolouration and damage to cement beds and joints
- Compromises weatherproofing by lifting roof tiles
- Can cause an allergic reaction on contact
- Rendering becomes weak, cracks and sometimes falls off
