What is the best material to put under a deck?

The best material to put under a deck will depend on various factors including your budget, desired aesthetics, and maintenance preferences. Here are some common options in order of our preference:

1. Gravel or Crushed Stone

Gravel or crushed stone is a cost-effective option that allows for good drainage. It's relatively easy to install and provides a natural look. However, it might not offer as much protection from weeds growing through and might not be as visually appealing as other options. To avoid the weed problem, we use a weed supressing fabric under the gravel.

2. Lattice Panels

Lattice panels are a popular choice for deck skirting. They provide ventilation, allow light to pass through, and come in various designs. They're relatively easy to install and can add a decorative element to your deck.

3. Wood or Composite Panels

Using wood or composite panels for under-deck skirting can provide a seamless and coordinated look with your deck. These panels can be matched to the decking material for a cohesive appearance. Wood panels can be stained or painted to achieve the desired look.

4. Brick Wall:

If you're looking for a more permanent and substantial option, brick walls can provide a sturdy underlayment. However, this is a more complex and costly option that might require professional installation.


When selecting the best material for under your deck, it's important to ensure proper ventilation and drainage to prevent moisture build-up, which can lead to rot and mould growth. This is the most common problem we encounter when renovating an old deck.
