Should I line my Planter with Plastic Sheeting?
I built a large privacy planter in my front yard. I used PT wood and the bottom's are exposed earth. I thought it would be a good idea to line the inside with 6 MIL clear plastic. I covered on the interior walls and left the bottom open earth.
My thinking is that the plastic will prolong the life of the wood by keeping the wet soil away from the wood. However, I am noticing that moisture is building up between the plastic and the wood - it gets sun all day long.
Have I made a mistake?
FYI - I tend to overbuild and over-engineer everything...and I enjoy every second of it.
