there is a corner of my yard that children rudely cut through as they walk to and home from school, or during after school activities. Some of them are so inconsiderate that they even cut across that corner of my yard when they are riding their bike.
I have nicely requested they instead please use the sidewalk, which request they now only comply with if they see me in the yard when they pass by.
Now I am resolved to make that corner more of a problem for them to cut through than they would encounter just using the sidewalk.
I plan to install some strategically placed rocks and either plant some Yuccas or groundcover roses. My question is "are there simple ways to keep the Bermuda grass out of this large corner bed?" Or is installing a labor intensive 12 - 18 inch deep root barrier the only solution?
