We use root guard. A plastic product, about 2 feet deep as the roots rarely go deeper than 18". Slightly angle the guard outward and the roots hit it and pop up so you can easily trim it. Use several layers of the guard.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Planning Paths and Walkways
A boardwalk made up of straight lines adds a wood element to a modern, Japanese-inspired garden. SIDE NOTE: BEWARE OF BAMBOO! Make sure you have a species that will not spread and take over acres and acres of land. This plant can be very invasive, no matter what kind of planter you have around the roots.
Sidewalk and porch floor alternative.
Amy Renea added this to Boardwalks Bridge the Gap to Nature
If possible, design the boardwalk around the existing plantings. Trees can provide the basic outline for the boardwalk and provide a ceiling for visitors strolling along the path.
Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to What Kind of Gardener Are You? Find Your Archetype
Find Your ArchetypeThe traveler. The traveler is full of adventure, enjoys the journey as much as the destination, is a storyteller, enjoys mystery and intrigue, and delights in the shadows and places off the beaten path. The traveler will find deep satisfaction in a garden that celebrates the journey with winding paths, secret garden rooms hidden within tall hedges, sounds of bubbling water and perhaps wind chimes, slight aromas to conjure up all-but-forgotten memories and places to display artifacts discovered on trips abroad. A sense of rhythm, or placing similar objects in measured intervals throughout the space, will be of importance in this garden, as it will draw the visitor deeper within the space.A small urban garden containing a hidden nook in which to read and to display mementos will also satisfy the spirit of the traveler.More about garden “travelers”
Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to Explore Your Garden Personality: The Traveler
The first step to creating your personal garden is to do some introspection to determine what life story you would like your space to tell. Perhaps you have a traveler spirit and are drawn to adventure, mystery, intrigue, exotic distant locations and spontaneous day trips. Let’s see how you can translate these passions into the garden you have always wanted but didn’t know how to create.

The traveler. The traveler is full of adventure, enjoys the journey as much as the destination, is a storyteller, enjoys mystery and intrigue, and delights in the shadows and places off the beaten path. The traveler will find deep satisfaction in a garden that celebrates the journey with winding paths, secret garden rooms hidden within tall hedges, sounds of bubbling water and perhaps wind chimes, slight aromas to conjure up all-but-forgotten memories and places to display artifacts discovered on trips abroad. A sense of rhythm, or placing similar objects in measured intervals throughout the space, will be of importance in this garden, as it will draw the visitor deeper within the space. A small urban garden containing a hidden nook in which to read and to display mementos will also satisfy the spirit of the traveler.

A boardwalk made up of straight lines adds a wood element to a modern, Japanese-inspired garden. SIDE NOTE: BEWARE OF BAMBOO! Make sure you have a species that will not spread and take over acres and acres of land. This plant can be very invasive, no matter what kind of planter you have around the roots.
