Keeping mint under control

Any tips for keeping a mint patch under control? It was in our garden from the previous owner but has spread into our lawn - yikes! We want to keep the mint as we use it but need to know how to keep it at bay and what to do with what's growing in the lawn. Help!

Mint can be a terrible weed spreading both by the stems and by roots. Many plant mint in a container and sink the container into the garden.  You may need to use an herbicide to irradiate the invader. Check with your county extension service for recommendations in your area.

Grow the mint in large pots.  Mint is highly invasive and the pot will keep it contained.  Use plastic pots not terra cotta pots.
