    I had a deck installed last year and now I see weeds growing out between the boards. What to do?!

    This time of year I don't have that issue.:D But you can lay some plastic under the deck, and stone to hold it down. A stick can spread it if you have limited access.

    I can't get under the deck to lay weed block. I am currently using Roundup, but it is not effective. I need something that is pet friendly too.

    I heard salt water & vinegar is a natural remedy. Will the salt or salt & vinegar eat up the wood?
