I would like to add an area to my lawn (just of my deck, that I can put chairs and table, etc. However, I do not want to go into the expense and time of laying pavers. Any suggestions?

"Loose" surface materials, such as gravel or crushed stone, are the easiest to install, while patio pavers, brick and stone offer a more formal look and a more stable surface for outdoor furniture. You can mark off the area with cedar or redwood two by fours and fill in with rubber mulch, gravel or even those rubberized interlocking tile squares used for garage and playroom floors (look in the carpet section of your local Home Depot). Winco Interlocking Rubber Floor Mat Squares is one brand. Best wishes with your project.
