The crawlspace is currently just earth. I'm going to be raking it, laying moisture barrier and then taping to seal.

Should I spread lime onto the earth before laying the barrier?

What are you trying to achieve by spreading lime? – bcworkz Oct 6 '12 at 15:33
Lime cam be pretty caustic. If you do, you should use skin and eye protection. – bib Oct 6 '12 at 19:55
@bcworkz I want to assist in decomposing any organic matter under the house – Matthew Oct 8 '12 at 14:29
