[Market-farming] compost pile ideas

I need to have a very basic compost pile for my farm to compost veggie
scrap waste, but the problem is I have these horribly invasive
rhizomes of grass (canary reed, quack, etc.) that invade the bottom of
the pile as it sits there, and then makes the finished compost
unusable. I was planning on doing a windrow type pile & turning it
with my bucket loader, layering spoiled hay in between vegetable layers.
Anyone have a creative idea for how to block out the grass from coming
up through the pile? I do not own the land, just lease it-- so a
concrete pad is out of the question for now. Other ideas?
