Something that is a weed killer will not damage your ivy or your juniper bushes.  The weed killer will have a list of weeds it will kill on the label.  Read it and follow the directions for application.  Weed killers generally kill about 20 wide leaf weeds.

Weed B Gone is a wide leaf weed killer.

Vegetation eradicator kills everything it comes in contact with.  It will kill your ivy and your juniper.

Round Up is a vegetation eradicator.

Reading the labels either online or at the store before you make a purchase is a good lesson to learn.  Follow the application instructions to the letter.  More is not better if you bought concentrate thinking you could apply it full strength and therefore onlhy need to apply one time.

I don't like using chemicals...........if you can just put vinegar right on the plant that you want to kill.....use an old mustard container that has a pointed top......and just a few drops of vinegar....white...will kill the unwanted plants.......can someone pull them out for you any dirt that comes with it don't shake it off....just trash it.  Our forefather's used that long before chemicals came along.

Thank-You for that answer! Unfortunately, one of my nieghbors sprayed for me.... killed my junipers DEAD! The ivy seems to be doing fine. My nieghbor, used Round Up. I am not thrilled, but as we used to say : "that's life, that's what they say.........."
So sorry to hear that.  I had trouble with poison ivy and I had to spray for it every spring.  The only way that we got rid of it when the tree was hit my lightning and we had to take it down.
