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

Shed was delivered right on time. Nate drove it into the back yard and placed it perfectly. He even moved my old shed out of the way. The ground was wet and soft and I was afraid my grass would be torn to shreds but there was only very light dents in one part of the lawn so I stamped on it with my feet, threw some seed and that's that. Thanks again. The shed looks great and very well made. I especially like the textured floor. I was expecting plain old plywood as the surface but whatever the coating is looks like it will last a long time. My neighbor is jealous especially after I told him what I paid. His is not as good looking and he paid almost a grand more.

Very nice shed, delivery was a breeze.Very satisfied.

Just a note to tell you how extremely happy my wife Pauline and I are of the quality and craftmanship that exists with your company . Your employees Mark, Will and John who erected our garage are second to none . We didn't think that companies like yours even existed . Their work ethics was absolutely unbelievable . Please keep your crew and don't ever lose them . I don't know how to express in words how happy and pleased we are and especially very thankful for working with us . I will recommend you to everyone .

I spent a good amount of time researching sheds before deciding to go with Sheds Unlimited. I definitely made the right choice. The experience was truly professional from start to finish. From the sales team, to the deliver team and finally the person the actually delivered the shed. Actually, I could not be happier with the way the process went. I very much recommend Sheds Unlimited to you if you are in the market for a new shed.

Michael Corradino from Wilmington DE

The shed looks wonderful in the garden and yes, has been a better convenience to access mowers and tools.  Locking and unlocking and the ramp usage are terrific.

Victoria from Heidelberg twp

We custom ordered a 8x16 shed. Quality workmanship. Delivered on time. Great pricing. Friendly staff. Great experience.

I had a 48' custom combo garage/pavilion designed with great support, timeliness and price. It came out amazingly well. The always polite crew worked hard from 6AM to 11PM to get it assembled. Minor fixes were done just 2 days later. Couldn't be happier with the result.

Charles from Carmel, NY

Our local zoning board had a ton of requirements that resulted in us changing our shed order 3 times. Sheds Unlimited was very flexible and helpful. In the end we love our shed and are happy that we went to Shed's Unlimited to get it. We highly recommend.
