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

Had a great experience working with Sheds Unlimited. Shed looks beautiful with attention to detail better than I expected. Shed was delivered on time and placed perfectly.
Larry B from Myersville, MD
My husband and I shopped many places in our area for a shed-screenhouse combo, but no one built them. We were in Pa in November, and visited the shedsunlimited location in Gap. David was very helpful and gave us lots of information to look at. We got our combo last week and it was everything that we wanted. They have done an excellent job, it is great. Everyone that I spoke to during the process was very nice to deal with and the delivery person was great. We couldn't believe one person could move a 12x24 shed by himself. We would do business again with this company and would refer friends too.

The folks at sheds unlimited are the very best. I talked to them several times before ordering, and they answered every question, and then some. I live in a neighborhood with an association, and need to have all building plans approved. Sheds unlimited provided me with color samples, and a drawing. I made many changes in the workshop, moving the doors to the end, left the shutters off, added window boxes, and added one foot to the height of the walls to accommodate our golf cart. We live as far south on the eastern shore of Virginia. Our shed arrived on time, and was built exactly as promised. The driver was courteous, and operated the "mule" without any effort. He placed the shed exactly on my marks, leveled the shed, and insured the doors would open properly. I would, and have recommended Sheds Unlimited to my friends, and would buy from them again. In this day, and age there is a lot to be said for integrity, and Sheds unlimited certainly has that!!
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.

Great experience with Sheds Unlimited from inquiring, ordering, follow up and delivery. The shed is just as ordered. Beautifully made. Delivery guys arrived as scheduled, and perfectly placed. Very happy and definitely recommend Sheds Unlimited to others. Thank you.

From sales, to service, to delivery, all absolute professionals. And, the icing on the cake, you cannot beat their prices. Congratulations on a job well done. You found yourselves a life time customer. Thank you!
Reza from Towson, MD
I could not be happier with our shed and service we received. I originally ordered a shed from Home Depot but ran into one problem after another with the delivery. After cancelling that order I found Sheds Unlimited. The price was lower installed and delivered and the shed was far more superior than what I expected from Home Depot.
Grant Y. from Pottsville, PA
My husband and I were very impressed with the efficiency and quality workmanship exhibited in the construction of our barn shed. The carpenters were most polite and professional and represent their company well. We are very satisfied customers and have already recommended "Sheds Unlimited" to others who we have shown off our shed to!
Great Product, Great Service. It was amazing how one person was able to get shed off truck bed onto the mule and place it exactly to the inch where I wanted the shed to be placed. I'll be back to buy again.
Nick Mazzolla from North Arlington, NJ
I ordered a non-standard to my instructions and fit to a tee, well built, and very help full in everyway. These GUYS are the best. You won't find a bettter deal.
