Mt plants are just starting to show some sprouts.I was wondering if i should dig a perimeter around them to keep them from spreading in unwanted areas.Thanks..Mark

Just let the strongest 3-4 shoots keep growing. Cut the rest.

My "perimeter" for the main raised hop garden is a cinder block wall that continues underground a foot and a half. Nothing has escaped underneath in 7 years. However, a second ground level plot has side shoots going everywhere. A hoe deals with them. Then as Jim says 3-4 shoots per string, depending on how much shade you want and how well you feed and water them.
