    I have heard that there is a particular type of string that one should use to tie ivy to vertical surfaces. The string supposedly biodegrades after
    one season. Can anyone make a specific recommendation?

    Don't do it! Unless you are in its native land. We are battling our neighbor's ivy as well. There are so many other options for your fence!

    Why did you reply to a 24-year old post? Do you even know if the person
    who posted the original is still alive?

    Trump claims he is the "law and order" President. Then, he
    breaks the law by using copyrighted music at his rallies
    without permission from the copyright owners.

    When responding, one never knows if any poster is alive, regardless of
    original date.
