pachysandra

I have pachysandra and don’t really care what variety it is. I do know that it propagates very easily, growing like strawberries do. My pachysandra grows out beyond where I want. How can I contain it? I had thought to build a barrier. My experience with Japanese knotweed, which grows to a depth of 4 feet, is not one I wish to repeat.

I have found that typically a small barrier, such as garden edging, and a yearly manual edging with a sharp spade to cut the runners is enough to keep the pachysandra in check.

Thank you!
Is a four inch barrier sufficiently deep?

Yes, that should be good. Happy gardening!
