DEck Floor help

Hi, I live in Canada and it is a 4 season area, anyways I have a photo here to explain my situation.

So there is my problem ,this is an area below my deck ,a walk down the stairs.

Anyways would it be a good idea to put a treated wood floor 8' wide , 16' long in the place of those concrete slabs?

It looks awful right now and adding another deck to the one I have would not solve my sand and grass problems as u can see.

I would make the floor mostly in the ground and to come up even with grass .

Is it possible and what is the best way to go about the project.

Thks

Deck would look better than what is there. Just make sure that soil slopes away from house to carry water away from foundation. Looks like there is not enough grade.

One thing about home improvement, is that when you fix up something new the adjacent areas start looking tired. The gate and fence are starting to look at little tired, too.

ok thks for reply , the gate and fence are about 6 years old , we have alot of sun in this area ,we have no trees for shade.

The fence and gate actually are in very good shape.

Ok so how would u go about starting this ?

The base would be all corners of cement pillar with slits in it ,using 2x4 's.

This is just an idea ,anyone with good construction or wood skills here.

i just need the proper way to start it and to follow in a good finish

Thks
