How to Prepare Your Gravel Shed Pad

Gravel Pad for Portable Sheds

Storage Shed Pads and Garage Gravel Pad Preparation

Preparing for your storage shed from Sheds Unlimited is an important procedure. We recommend placing your shed on a gravel storage shed pad as outlined below. Please follow the storage shed pad or car garage pad instructions as outlined. On larger two, three of four car garages and two-story buildings we provide directions on preparing a concrete pad. As always, feel free to call us at 717-442-9055 or email us if you have any further questions.

SHEDS UNLIMITED is NOT responsible for structural problems if one fails to follow the instructions. Failure to follow instructions will VOID the Sheds Unlimited WARRANTY and may incur extra delivery charges!

Follow These Instructions For Storage Shed Pad Preparation with a Gravel Pad

1. Measure the Space for your Building

Please ensure that our “MULE” can bring the shed fully assembled into your backyard (if the area is tight, please request a “built on site” shed)

2. Build a Perimeter for Your Storage Shed

Build a 4″x4″, 4″x6″ or 6″x6″ pressure treated perimeter. The STONE AREA of your SHED PAD should be at least ONE FOOT WIDER and ONE FOOT LONGER than the actual size of the building. See Photos Below. 

3. Fill in With Stone

Fill the area inside the frame with 4-6 inches of 3/4 INCH CRUSHED STONE – DO NOT USE RIVER BEAD STONE or a SMOOTH ROUNDED STONE!!

4. Check for Level

Please MAKE SURE that the pad is PERFECTLY LEVEL and SQUARE

Thank you Shed's Unlimited!

I found you by doing research on the internet and boy am I glad I did. The quality of my shed is very impressive. We have a problem with wood burrowing bees here and there is not one inch of exposed wood on the whole shed. I am sorry winter is approaching because I have big plans to turn this shed into my work room. Your prices are very fair compared to what you get at the big box home supply stores. My only regret is that I did not get my shed slightly bigger. Thanks again guys, I am very happy and I am recommending you to my neighbors.

Great product great service great delivery time highly recommend this company

I shopped extensively and did my homework looking for a shed. I had to since I hadn't owned a shed before and am I glad I did. I demanded high quality craftsmenship at the best price and you guys exceeded my expectations for both. You delivered it on time, set it wear I needed it to go on my property all for a very reasonable price. Also your delivery guy took extra care as to not negatively impact my grounds during the installation. Well done Sheds Unlimited ! R.L.

By far the best building experience we have ever had. We have built three homes with the same builder, and while he does very good work it was always difficult to get through. His quote to build a detached garage was 40% higher than Sheds Unlimited. So we started the process to build a garage with Shed Unlimited. Amazing what you can do via the internet and a few phone calls. From the beginning to the end Sheds Unlimited was professional, and upfront with how the process would work. End of story our garage was delivered this week. They arrived at 6am as committed to (actually had to ask them to delay start as were in a city neighborhood with close neighbors) They have such a incredible work ethic that while they didn't necessarily like wasting an hour they graciously understood. 3 days later the garage was completed with zero issues. Mark and the other two employee were a pleasure to have in and around our home for those 3 days. If I owned a business I would only hope i could employee these 3 gentlemen. The quality of the finished product is exactly what we expected and are accustom to. The building inspector found one issue and Mark and crew corrected same day to pass inspection. They cleaned up the entire grounds and took all garbage with them. Incredible organization and I highly recommend Sheds Unlimited to anyone. Our neighbors actually came out of their homes when Mark and team were departing to get brochures and commented on how they were watching the process and again were amazed that the team was in and out in 3 days. Great job, and Thank you!!!

Mark and Japheth at Sheds Unlimited delivered an incredibly well built 10x14 shed for our backyard today. The specifications, colors, options and delivery where all as promised. Use their online instructions for creating a pad. Make sure you have clearance to get the shed to the pad. Call them with questions - everyone at Sheds Unlimited was professional and focused on me the customer. What a change!

We traveled to the factory to view and order our MaxiBarn. The entire process was simple and made easy by the sales staff. We ordered exactly what we wanted and had it delivered within a month. We were impressed with the quality workmanship and the delivery was perfect with the mule. The staff at Sheds Unltd. are the best as is there product. Could not ask for more. Great Job!

Edward Bird from Essex,MD

It was really a pleasure working with the shedsunlimited team from start to finish. We spent a long time choosing the right garage and received a lot of help along the way to understand all the options. It was amazing to watch the team build the garage in one day - very hard working crew. We could not be happier with the end result - a great garage, for a great price and a great experience. Thanks.

David S. from Yardley, PA

It was important o us to have a garden shed that blended with our the traditionl style of our home. We worked with Mark who helped us design a shed that had features that we preferred.

Our entire neighorhood was extremely impressed and amazed by the skill and work ethic of Mark, John, and Wille. They had a muddy six foot downhill space that they had to negotiate in order to unload and place the bulding materials in our yard. They arrived at 6:00 am started work without complaints or hesitation and never stopped until our shed was completed at 7:45 pm. They got 3 large pizzas at lunch time which was their breakfast and lunch they ate it as they worked.
We have been pleased with every aspect of our dealings with Sheds Unlimited. We cannot praise this organization highly enough.

Charles and Jane Brown from Marion, North Carolina

I needed to build a single garage for my car for the longest time, but wasnt able to find a good and affordable option, everything i looked for the size i wanted was at least 1k higher than here, let alone with higher shipping and installation cost.

I was able to order my garage right over the phone in 15mins, they came 2 weeks earlier than the time they quoted me, and the installation were amazing. came 5 mins earlier to when they said they'll be here, got it done in less time than they estimated and finished with an amazing job. they left the work site with no trash or any sign that they been there expect for the garage.

the quality of the garage is great, all the edges are sealed tight, door works seamlessly, and the paint looks wonderful.

Couldnt be happier, i would recommend anyone that's looking for a shed or garage to come to these guys, save time, save money, and satisfied with results.

tao from New york, NY

Really great business to work with, Delmar was great at providing details and very patient with my questions. The price was good so I bought the shed, it took a couple of weeks for it to be delivered but it came today and Nate was awesome in making sure it was level and perfect on the pad. The "mule" got it from the truck to the back of the house with little effort and no damage to the property or shed. It's a good looking shed but best of all extremely well built, very solid. Very happy with my purchase, thank you!
