I HATE IVY!!!!

I HATE IVY!!!!

We bought our house a year ago. The space that is between the house and the driveway is covered with ivy!! I hate ivy. HATE it. Last year, I just pulled what I can, knowing full well it would come back, but it wasn't a priority for me last year. However, now.... I want it gone! I want to plant other prettier plants/flowers there. What kills ivy? Is there an inexpensive way for me to get rid of it since pulling it by the roots is pointless?
