Plastic and Stone for ground under deck?
Is putting down plastic then covering with stone still the accepted plan for the ground underneath a deck?
My IPE deck will be about 3' off the ground at its highest.
I was going to put down the plastic and then stone. I figured the plastic would prevent the moisture from coming up though the ground and possibly giving me problems (cupping...)
The deck will not be fully enclosed....maybe some lattice at a later date. So I think ventilation should be ok.
So is the plastic and stone a good plan?
