Part of my backyard was infested with raspberry vines. They hardly bore fruit worth eating.

A gardener cleaned out the place; however, whenever it rains, new shoots come out of the ground. I dig out as much of the root system as I can.

Question: I'm thinking of roto-tilling the soil but would that not just simply cut the root systems into smaller pieces, meaning even more shoots coming up later on?

You will need to apply products referred usually as "brush killers" to the plants to get rid of them.You'll need to apply to actual plant growth to be effective.Also possible are products known as "vegitation killers" but are soil sterilants and kill for up to one year before planting is possible.
