You are right about the plastic being a bad idea. We have landscape
fabric, available in different strengths, with river rock on top and
used in similar areas where nothing grows. We have Trex on our finger
dock, about 7 years old. Full sun, all day, Florida. Concrete pavers
or black vinyl lawn edging work nicely around the rock and contain it well.
Yeah, it's one of those - whichever one grows all over western NY. It's
actually a good ground cover, as long as there's nothing nearby which you do
NOT want it to wrap itself around, like your favorite plants, shrubs, air
conditioning unit, car or children.
