|A deep trench filled with concrete or lined with bricks will help keep the suckers from growing into the rest of your yard. Or, you might want to simply use your shovel on the inside of the barrier to cut down through the roots so you can pull up the suckers that are growing on the other side of the barrier. Do this once a month and the roots won't grow out of the bed. You can prune down the canes that produced berries last year. New berries will develop on the new growth your plants put out this spring. Best wishes with your raspberry patch.
