A garden cellar, an earth cellar, is by definition a construction that has the ability to maintain a stable temperature throughout the year, making it ideal for storing food, beverages, tools, or as a utility room.
The temperature and humidity in a garden cellar have a direct impact on the quality of food stored there.
Plastic sheeting is a commonly used material in the construction industry. It is most commonly used to protect structures from moisture. Depending on the type of components from which it is made and its final thickness, plastic sheeting is used in specific areas of the construction of buildings and structures.
In the widespread opinion among people who are not familiar with the construction industry, plastic sheeting is a relatively cheap and easy-to-use form of waterproofing a garden cellar structure, especially ready-made prefabricated cellars. After all, all you have to do is line the prepared trench with plastic sheeting, insert the prefabricated basement, turn the plastic sheeting up over the top and no groundwater will frighten you. Simple. But is it really?
