I'd start by killing any vegetation in the construction area then laying down weed block to keep weed seeds from germinating. After you've secured the weed block, build your deck. The area should remain weed free for a decade or more. The weed block will allow water to percolate through but will effectively block sunlight, which will keep weeds from growing. Good luck with your project!
