I followed plans and built an elevated herb garden with a drainage system. It says to line it with plastic sheeting and the cloth fabric to get water to the drainage system and to keep dirt from clogging it up. My question is, is that safe for food? I've looked up the types, such as hdpe types but can't tell if the thin flexible stuff like garbage bag material is safe. What can I use ? Thank you in advance.

Sorry but, I'm not visualizing what you are building. Can you post some photos?

Maybe plastic sheeting to protect the walls, and weed cloth on the bottom? I agree pictures are needed, and type of lumber used.

The bottom slopes from the sides towards the middle so the water drains into like a gutter in the middle and out the back, which is the white thing sticking out. And it's made of cedar.
