deck skirting-lattice alternatives and proper ventilation

Forgive me but I am a novice. I want to add skirting to my deck but dont like the look of lattice. I also understand I need ventilation. How much is enough? My idea is to take material (wood?), cut squares in it randomly, then attach faux stone to cover the wood. The result would be a stone wall with holes in it for ventilation. The faux stone would match the stone on my home's foundation. Qould this work? ? If not, what are some alternatives to lattice?

I don't like lattice either, especially working with it. AFAIK, that would be enough ventilation but I wouldn't do it randomly. Cut the vents opposite each other & then another one on the third side.

I would definitely use pressure treated lumber. Also, I would buy pressure treated lumber that is suitable for ground contact and use it for the bottom strip that contacts the ground.
