Default forcing grow patterns

has anyone ever tried to possibly block a section in the substrate to make runner plants to grow in a certain pattern, direction or area like for instance to have your background runners trained across the back of the tank?

yes easy to do. I've used acrylic from home depot and cut it to the size i need and went left to front with it. so i didn't have foreground mixing with mid and back ground roots.
