prevention of berry patch rizones or trailers from encroaching on a new garden

I' m creating a new vegetable garden from part of an existing raseberry and black berry patch. To prevent the trailers from encroaching on the new garden I thought I would create a barrier by burying a section of metal lawn edging, but could not find any wide enough. My idea is to dig a 12" trench line it with old aluminum siding and put aluminum flashing at the bottom. Will that do the trick or is there a better idea?. Or will they find a way around it no matter what?

What is the depth of your top soil? If you don't get down to near the bottom of your tops soil layer, then you won't stop the berries from encroaching. Aluminum flashing, or corrugated roofing would work well for a barrier up to 24 inches deep.
