They only way that I can think of is using a GRAVELY....it is an open front machine that will act like a lawnmower but it will trim everything......go all the way to the edge of the bank......then you have clear ground to work with.  You might even have a friend who has one, they call them another name at Home Depot & Lowe's.....

Useing an electric hedge trimmer cut the ivy off at ground level, then againvertically in the length of the trimmer.  Role up the pad of ivy and get rid of it.  I did this 14 years ago and none has grown back.  The soil is very fertile because of all of the decaying leaves which had beeb caught in the ivy.  If you leave ivy in the adjacent plot it will be invasive, so be vigilant.
