I am thinking of putting raised beds in my vegetable garden. The soil on the floor has too much ash on purpose to prevent weed growth. Do i need a barrier between it and the beds to keep the ph level correct or will my new soil get alkaline over short period of time. I plan to change the soil every 6 months. I was thinking of using plastic visqueen 5mil. any thoughts...
