Just looking for more ideas here. I'm rebuilding my deck, which is over a bit of a slope. It's easy to see from the original concrete that in the 20 years since it was built, 2-3" of soil have washed away in the steeper spots. When the original owner built it, he used black fabric over the ground under the half of the deck closest to the house. The other half was left bare and that's where the erosion has taken place. . I've looked at the different fabric-type products available at one of the big box stores, and I'm thinking of getting a couple yards of crushed rock to go on top of that. The deck is 16x20 if it matters. Any other ideas or thoughts? Should I just go with one of the erosion control fabrics and call it good? This is something I wouldn't mind going overboard on just for peace of mind.
