plastic under deck

I'm wondering if I need plastic and gravel under my deck.I hear people say to do it ,but I am not sold.The deck will be about 30" above grade and will have a solid skirting.The grade is level.I can't see how anything will grow in that dark space.What other reason would you do this?

My deck is only 8' wide, no plastic or rock
I do have a drin leading off to the side of the house
When I went to pour the cement stair landing it would cut off the drain area
The ground sloped to that side
So I ran the drain pipe thru one corner

Thereis dirt under there
Gravel would prevent me tracking dirt back into the house
I have 2 different storage area access doors under there (storage under sunroom)

Very little grows under there
Some day I will add some rock
