creeping ivy

creeping ivy

on my back wall there ivy that envelops a chain link fence that basically creeps into a portion of my backyard. From what i've read the only thing I can do is to just keep trimming it. I was wondering if weedmat + stones would be an effective deterrant. I would imagine that it would do a good job of keeping ivy from popping up. I'm open to suggestions.
