I've always found it easy to weed ivy, no thorns and shallow roots.
Or you could put down a groundcover sheet, and the piggies will still have the space to explote, and you can do grass deliveries several times a day.

Ivy should be fairly easy to rip up.
We put ours out for 30 minutes while we cleaned the Pighouse. There was a buttercup patch that I tried to remove (got most) and trusted my adult pigs to not eat it.
They are pretty sensible though I'd never trust them 100% wink

I'm a bit odd in that I find ivy quite satisfying to pull up. It usually consists of quite long stems which rip up really easily, so you can actually clear a lot in a short time. I once cleared an area of about half a tennis court in a couple of hours. The worst thing is thinking about it, once you start it's not that bad.

Why only half the tennis court Fernie
Were you trying to tangle your opponent up in ivy and scupper their chances?

Wanders off to think about embroidery 'n' stuff..............................
