Copper rings in the garden must not be covered with soil tho.
Copper tape works to prevent snails etc climbing pots but does nothing for any that are in the compost.
Vigilance with torch and salt, pellets, nematodes and copper tape enable me to grow hostas with very little damage
Some mulches,,like bark chips, seem to make snail etc problem worse by providing " hidey holes" for them
