Should there be a plastic moisture barrier over the stone?


Your building code likely REQUIRES it.

A minimum of a 6 mil plastic sheeting over bare earth is required in most cases.

Inhibiting mold growth is related to inhibiting moisture.

Prevent moisture; Prevent mold.

Placing 6 mil plsatic over the ground and water/vapor proofing the walls of the crawl or basement will relieve you of mold problems.
