New compost bed on top of sheet plastic?
I've had black plastic covered with mulch over what was a part of my yard of Bermuda grass and weeds. The black plastic has been in place for two winters and one or maybe even two summers. I want to put a compost pile on this site where I will eventually expand it into a raised bed. Can I compost on top of the sheet plastic or does it need the soil underneath? My plan is to use a purchased wire compost bin. I usually line it with cardboard so the leaves and other materials don't fall out. Is this doable? I can cut a hole in the plastic if needed but I would rather keep the plastic intact.
