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

Thanks Sheds Unlimited. My 8x10 shed is perfect. The colors matched the house perfectly. The entire process, from Q&A prior to ordering to delivery, was top notch! The shed quality is just as I expected, unlike other sheds sold online or at the "big stores", this one is solid and with quality finishing. Getting lots of compliments!

Sid Fernandez from Eastchester, NY

Our garage is beautiful and was erected in record time. It was a pleasure dealing with the sales person and project manager. We couldn't be more pleased. Thanks again.

Gary Palmer from Smithsburg, MD

Ordered my 12x14 Shed from Sheds Unlimited. Ordered a kit style due to a fence issue getting into my backyard. The kit came very nicely packed and no damage. I soon realized that the door style that I thought I order was not the style shipped. I contacted customer service and they offered to drive up the right doors the next day and exchange them. I was shocked that they were willing to do this with what seemed a misunderstanding during the ordering. Very polite and professional. I ended up keeping the doors shipped cause I liked the way they looked but was still impressed with the offer to resolve the issue. I also recieved a broken door locking latch bolt (small extra part) . Sheds unlimited shipped one up and I had it in 3 days. Great company. Thanks , love the SHED. My kit looks like your assembled sheds and I'm not a contractor. I do recommend that maybe a few more shingles are sent with the kits. I only had 1 left over shingle. If I hadent made all perfect cuts or had a few damaged I would have been short. Otherwise 5 star rating.

Start to finash an A+ rating.

We are very pleased with our new shed. Very impressed with the quality of the construction and the color perfectly matched our house. Great value makes sheds unlimted the best choice in picking a company.

John Thomas from Dewey Beach, Delaware

Although there were various businesses closer than Sheds Unlimited, They came very highly recommended. This is the second shed I purchased and I am 100% satisfied with both. The only suggestion I would have would be for SU to inquire about local permits that would be required before the customer purchases. Outstanding quality and service. Got to love their MULE delivery!

Stynor Carter from Collingdale, Pa.

The entire process was a delight. Mark explained the options and was very accomodating to a couple special requests. The shed turned out beautifully and was delivered in record time. We were so impressed with everyone and will certainly recommend them to our friends and family. Quatlity and service were top notch!

I am very happy with my new shed, and have received many compliments from neighbors. It was delivered on schedule and there were no difficulties with the installation. The staff of Sheds Unlimited was always professional and a pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend your company with absolutely no reservations. Thank you all very much.
