Make holes in plastic sheet for new plants???

Hi! We are doing some new landscaping in the front of our house and are about to lay down plastic before filling with top soil and plants. But, the thing is that the plants have a deeper root system so how do we go about this to protect the old foundation when it comes to having the plastic protection from water coming into the basement? My question is, when planting the plants, do the need to be planted on top of the plastic or cut holes in the plastic for them?? If holes are made, doesn't that make the water come through and it was all done for nothing? If no holes, then the plastic would have to go very deep down in the ground.... please help as we are working on t as we speak.
