What do you recommend placing underneath my deck

I have a elevated deck off the back of my house, which underneath gets no sunlight therefore resulting in absolutely no grass growth which then results into mud when it rains. Here's the problem: My septic tank is under the deck, So I am limited to what I can put down to where I can still dig up my tank to get it pumped out when needed.

Got any ideas of what I can place down but still allow easy access to the septic tank. I was thinking mulch or gravel of some type??

Dig up the tank lid, install a riser so the lid is on grade. Then landscape fabric and mulch or stone.

Many folks enclose beneath deck area with lattice or other material and use for lawnmower and lawn equipment storage or potting shed.
