How to prevent Weeds & Roots from growing underneath my above ground pool?

I'm replacing the liner in my 18' X 33' above ground pool and I have alot of roots under the old liner. Most of the roots are very small but I had a couple of roots that were at least 3/8" or larger in diameter. The pool has been in place since 1994.

My question is: What can I put down on the ground before I install the new liner, to control weed & root growth? I will be installing Gorilla padding to help in protecting the new Liner.

Once the new liner is installed & the pool is filled again, What can I use around the exterior of the pool to help prevent root & weed growth? I'm really concerned with larger roots.

The Gorilla padding will help alot, but I would make sure to treat the whole area with RoundUp or a similar type of week killer prior to putting up your above ground pool and new liner.
