How to Prepare Your Gravel Shed Pad

We recommend a 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

George Otero from Medford New York
Great shed; quick delivery; customer service outstanding; delivery guy was great and did exactly what was supposed to be done.
We didn't want the "run of the mill" garage. The Garden Shed dormer windows, shutters etc. was so eye catching! What we needed was a two car garage with full attic. First time Sheds Unlimited constructed this concept. They accomplished it with flying colors! Exact paint match too. The three men never stopped working, John, Willie, and Mark. They could teach the new generation what the definition of fortitude is. True hard working impressive men. The entire organization of Shed Unlimited cannot be compared to in this day and age. Five stars all the way around. If and when you do hire them, congrats, and great choice, you found them. :) .
Ross and Colleen Duncan from Lenoir City, TN
Responsive on the phone, and courteous. I priced out a bunch of home office sheds--can't even tell you how many I checked out. I wound up ordering one of the in stock ones, and I can't be happier. Quick delivery, careful placement of the shed, and the price was great. It is literally like another room in your house--complete with insulation, electric, house-grade windows...even light bulbs. Definitely recommend!
Stacy Carey from Long Island, NY
