Under deck ground cover


Don't know if this is the right place but here goes. I have a raised deck that is about 6 feet off the ground. Built a nice sandbox under the deck for my son. I'm looking for something to put around the sandbox for the remaining space that will prevent plant growth so I don't have to mow and will be comfortable on bare feet for the kid running around. Have about 60 sq ft that will need to be covered. Thoughts are appreciated!

How about landscapeing cloth (breathable but prevents growth), covered with cedar wood chips.

Re: Under deck ground cover


Weeds will grow right through and on top of landscape cloth.
I deal with this on a daily basis.
Just hit it with total veg. killer before laying down the mulch.
Do not cheap out and buy the $11.00 premixed poop!
Unless it's 40% or more active ingredient it's not going to last a year.
The stuff I buy is about $40.00 a gal. but will treat 8000 Sq. ft.
