Norway Maple roots....

karinie's picture

I have a large Norway Maple on my small front yard. Virtually anything I try to plant in my raised garden plot gets choked out by the maple's incidious surface root system. I try and dig out root material in order to give the plantings a fair chance - but the roots fill back in in no time. Other than sinking rigid pots into the garden plots - any advice as to how I can deal with the roots and introduce a little interest into my front yard?
