Message: What is the best way to keep my lawn grass with runners out of my garden beds? Is the only way to just pull them? A lot of the roots are running under my mulch and weed fabric. Valerieblettner@gmail.com
I have had this problem in several gardens. The best solution is to cut a 3-4 inch deep edge along the garden bed and keep it well maintained. This is critical to the maintainence of the bed as it will keep the grass from creating its many stolons which find their way into our gardens.
