Overgrown Ivy on House
The green ivy in the side of my newly bought (last year) house is getting out of control.
Last year I cut back, almost to the wall, what I could reach, and to my surprise it grew back all variegated, lovely I thought.
Now for the rest?
I want to take it off the wall totally (above where I can reach) and let it re-grow. flat & variegated.
This will involve scaffolding etc...
But I think there might be birds nesting in the higher, sticking out 3', green, ivy.
I want the Ivy gone, I'll do it carefully, by hand (not machine) but ...
What if I find a nest? What do I do?
