my sisters back yard is covered in poison ivy. we dont let the dogs go back there, and when it comes time to cut the grass, she wont go near it. is there a safe way of killing it, without the possibility of spreading the oil? if i threw a tarp on it and let it sit until the end of summer? (my sister has health problems and i dont want to push it) ive been told that if you cut it with a lawn mower, the oil can spread into your lungs and cause more damage. any advice is greatly appreciated!
