    Working on decking and have a question

    We have been at this deck building for 3 summers. Time and money have been issues on getting things done quickly! We have half the railing finished and all the decking. Now I would like to do something with the lower part of deck. But I just don't want to put anymore money into wood. I used the heavier commercial landscape cloth and covered a 1x2 wooden frame and screwed it to the posts. Do you think this would have a chance of lasting until I'm up to spending more money and doing it right? Will share a few pictures so you can see our maze of decking. Started with a patio 16x20 and then added the 16x10 pavilion. When pool was put in we put the splash deck around and the decking from pavilion to pool and garage.

    I may have to come and personally inspect that setup in order to offer you a "professional" opinion! Barring any ridiculous high winds or animal intrusions, it should be just fine. Luvly!

    That looks pretty snazzy. I don't know how well it will hold up to weather but it looks like a cheap way to get around the wood for right now.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!

    Thanks, I think I'll give it a shot and see how it goes. Won't cost anything but time.

    If you wanted to make it last a little longer, you could cover the fabric with a plastic lattice panel.
