What we've done is to weed it out as soon as we see the little shoots appearing in the spring, and then methodically keep doing it. Keep on top of the weeding - it's a pain but it's working
Ours had spread in from next door. When we replaced the fencing we were able to dig out the main roots and runners, but it does keep reappearing, so vigilant weeding is the key! In the growing season I walk along the borders every evening, taking out the tiny weed seedlings, that way nothing ever gets so big that it becomes a problem.
It does seem that weeding is a neglected art!
