How do you get rid of the grass and weeds under your front porch deck?


How do you get rid of the grass and weeds under your front porch deck that has very little access? I want the grass gone but then what would I put in there to keep the grass from growing back?

    We had the same problem under our deck. We covered the ground with black plastic. We've had it under there for 9 years now. Hope this helps.

    I would try weed killer and after the grass/weeds are gone. Give it a while and plant some ground cover!! Good luck

    Cover the area with the black plastic landscaping material. If it gets no light it will eventually die. You can cover the plastic with gravel or rock or wood mulch and it will look good and the plastic will continue to keep the weeds from growing. I hope this works for you, Karen.

  • Hi Karen - This is the most effective all-natural weed killer DIY that we use. It's even been featured on Hometalk! Hope this helps! Hugs, Holly

    We used a weed killer once, pulled out all the dead weeds, and put down landscape fabric. Then we poured out several bags of small gravel, the kind that can be easily raked into place.
