Creating a Slab Base

This is the most popular method for placing a shed on areas such as grass or soil. Below is a step by step guide to creating a slab base.

Step 1

Decide where you'd like your new shed to go. Always remember to place your base at least 12 inches (300mm) away from walls & fences. This is to allow for the roof over-hang on our sheds.

Step 2

Remove any grass. If your garden is un-level (most are) you will have to excavate a little soil as needed to achieve a nice flat surface.

Step 3

Lay your paving slabs using a nice damp sand & cement mixture & ensure it is slightly bigger overall than the size of your shed. Any slightly damaged or dis-coloured (seconds) slabs are perfect for a slab base as you will not see them again for a long time.

Step 4

That's it! Please note: If you use slabs that leave a small gap in between each one, do not be tempted to fill these gaps with sand & cement (known as pointing or grouting) as the gaps will help keep the water away from the floor timbers.
