When plants outgrow their bounds, use an empty plant pot to define their universe.

Turn that pot right side up and put the plant IN it, then plant the whole thing to keep those underground spreaders from roaming.

For things like mint that can also flop over and root, leave a rim of about 2 inches.

Yes, that would certainly work as well. I don't have enough big pots to do that. I grow mints between our barn and gravel driveway which naturally limits their spread but still gives a very casual look.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

Suspect that the death part is key (for runners that break out)!
