Anyway, it is 4'x8' and I cut it to fit, and then cut it into smaller pieces so that I could access different compartments underneath without lifting the entire lattice. This should allow plenty of air under the cushions and cut down on dampness.

Here are a couple of photos. Let me know if you like it.

Cheers, Bill
The key to eliminating dampness is air circulation. Any commercial product for this allows air to circulate throughout the under cushion area. Those open areas in the lattice look like they are all isolated from each other.
