We built an easy no-dig dog run area beside our deck which is awesome, but we still needed to block off the underneath of the deck so the dogs couldn't just run around under it. My husband decided to build a deck skirting instead of using lattice. I'm not sure which would have been cheaper- probably lattice. But he liked the look of the skirting.

Tutorial

This is fairly simple, but time consuming. Using the supports from the deck, my husband built a frame so he had something to hammer the vertical boards onto.

Once that was built, he cut each board and spaced them evenly. As you can tell from the final pictures, the angled area and under the steps was much more difficult.
