Can I Use Plastic to Control Weeds in My Strawberry Patch?
I had a strawberry patch in the yard that became overrun with weeds. I took out the plants to start over with a raised bed. I'm going to be bringing in more dirt/sand. Should I put plastic or landscaping cloth down first to kill the weeds and grass, then put my dirt on top? Or will the plastic keep the soil from draining? Thanks!

I would use landscaping cloth or layer of newspaper. This will suppress the weeds without interfering with the drainage.
