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

Michael C from Manville, nj

I bought a garage from Sheds Unlimited a year ago, and I am still very pleased. Everything was just as I had specified. They were very easy to work with, and the price was competetive.
Even though it was a large ('24 x '48) building, their crew had it up in a day. Even our county buulding inspector commented on the quality of the workmanship. Everyone who sees my garage loves it.
Sheds Unlimited is an honest, concientious firm. I would reccomend them to anyone!

Can't say enough good things about Sheds Unlimited. From order placement right through delivery, everything went great. The pool house came out absolutely perfect, it was exactly what wee wanted. The order team was great helping me customize a few options, and i'm amazed at how smooth the delivery was. I will definitely order from again, and would suggest anyone looking for a new shed or other structure to give these guys a try. Thanks again!

Everett from Lakeville, PA

We received a 12x24 shed and love it! In the
Torrential rain on Friday they moved the shed
in with no damage to my yard. The Mule is amazing !!

Thank you

Dawn from Warminster, PA

The entire experience exceeded my expectations!

There is good service and there is GREAT service. Good business and GREAT business. After lots of painful research and onsite shed company visits, I stumbled across Sheds Unlimited. Boy did I/we luck-out because they are GREAT/GREAT! From David G. in the sales to Austin B. in the delivery, everyone was fantastic to work with. We live 100s of miles away and we never felt nervous giving the money down to get the project started. Brand new home, and the beautifully crafted Dutch Barn is PERFECT. the colors and style match impeccably. I will buy from them again when needed and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them without ANY reservations!

Rich Rivera from North borough MA

you guys are the best!

everyone on the phone was great in helping us pick out the right shed and worked with us through a couple changes.

you were significantly less expensive than our local 'discount' shed stores.

your installer was super nice and nestled the shed right into a pretty tight spot in the backyard.

the shed is great and we could not have asked for a better experience.

thanks again,

- Paul

I would rate this shed a 5 star. but salesman never asked about rain gutter location on shed. Never thought about it untill shed came on site and now water has to run up hill.There the best in the bussiness on set-up and the mule is great also thanks again  Ryan Cole.

g.g. from Pa.

Just great. Went to their Morgantown site to check out the sheds - the people were friendly, helpful, no pressure. Ordered on phone a few days later. Shed came in perfect condition, and Nate the delivery guy put our 10x14 shed EXACTLY where we wanted it without disturbing any landscaping... not even any turf damage. Outstanding purchase experience.
