Hey hello , we are new to the page and looking forward to picking up some great tips. We are going to build a Eko deck just above ground level, there will only be about 2-300mm clearance so what should we lay below the deck to control any water?

Welcome to the Workshop community. We're pleased you could join us and trust you'll receive lots of helpful advice and inspiration for your home improvement projects from our members.
Are you able to tell us a bit more about the conditions on the proposed site of the deck? What type of soil do you have? Is there any slope? Do you have any problems with water currently? Perhaps you could also share a photo or two?

The deck will on fairly level ground as it’s a new home , the ground is your typical w.a costal sandy type as well. Unfortunately until they finish the home I can only go by eye as to the slope which looks minimal,
Hey guys , in regards to weeds n stuff I was thinking of using a product called Terra Firma I have used in road construction to control water penatrating the the sub base , it’s like a woven carpet laid down on a base and then sub base is compacted and road base is laid n compacted and up with a solid road surface. I’m unsure if Bunnings carries this product?Using this we should be able to control weeds also make a gentle slope away from the home for any water control. Any advice other than going this way would be appreciated.
I was thinking more like a 7-10mm aggregate n then slope it towards a drain around the perimeter to channel it away. But we are open to all input as we will only get one chance to do it right. 👍
Sounds like a great approach @baza. Can't see you having any dramas with that.
