My wife being from Germany was feeling home sick so i built her a beautiful 45x25 beergarden. I had planted my hops along the front edge of this. 4 years later we want to put fence around our property come to find out 20 of the 25 foot depth of the beergarden is not on our property, so yeah me i get to redo everything i did 4 years ago. as i am moving 11ton of peagravel and lifting the plastic i had put down i am finding what appears to be hops roots and rizhomes. Do they really root out that far? After moving the main plants and some of the rizhomes if these roots(not on my property lol) are left alone will i start getting hops bines all around the neighboring woods?

Do you have any pictures of what you built? I'm interested in seeing how the beergarden would look.

Beer is the mind-killer. Beer is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my beer. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see it's path. When the beer has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

Cool beergarden. The rock fountain is a nice touch. You are going to move that whole thing?! From what I understand about hops, it sounds like you stand a good chance of having a forest full of hops, even if you did cut the bines down to the roots and move them.
