Garden Shed Foundations

 

OK, choosing a shed foundation may not exactly be exciting, but it is very important installation decision that will ensure you get many years of enjoyment from your shed. 

The typical materials used for laying a shed base are concrete or paving slabs. Concrete is the most solid base if put down correctly but paving slabs are a fairly easy option - you may still need to lay a concrete and sand mix first in order to make it as sturdy as possible. Another option is to use timber bearers. These are quick, cheap and easy to lay – simply place them directly onto the ground with no need for concrete.

To avoid undertaking any major DIY there are pressure-treated wooden shed bases or plastic shed bases that come in range of sizes and can be placed straight onto the earth without the hassle of laying concrete.
