will the soil rotten the fence?

As I am still in the digging stage, what I am doing is digout the top soil and just lay them alongside the fence as I have not figured out what I do with them yet.... as some said they are expensive stuff and can be used to set flower bed in the future... throwing them away may be wasteful....

but I have a concern: as the soil is rest against the pressure treated lumber fence... will it rotten the wood? should I put some sort of membrane plastic to isolate the mud and the wood to avoid rottening?

It may not rot the wood at least not quickly since it is pressure treated. It will however most likely stain the wood. I'd keep it way from the fence. Membrane or not.
