Proper drainage means you have far less problems in the future.

The plastic is also helpful, so don't forget it.
Really appreciate it. As far as plastic is that interchangeable with a good landscape fabric? In my situation where I already have landscape fabric down and its sloped as above. Would you if you were in my shoes add more dirt to get the exact specs which would be a little tough with all the framing there or leave with the slope I have?

I would try to get it close as possible.

The plastic is best.
Helps water run off, keeps ground moisture from deck, and is grass and weed control.
