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

I ordered a 10'x16' shed for motorcycle storage. Price was competitive, delivery on time. Request for custom changes such as larger door opening no problem. A well constructed, good looking building. Friendly cooperative staff, a painless process.

From purchase to delivery the entire customer service team was fantastic! The shed is well built and the process couldn't have been any easier. We are very satisfied and will definitely use Sheds Unlimited if we need another shed! Great Value!

Andrew Heeter from Fallston, MD

Absolutely love my shed! I wouldn't recommend any other place! Looking forward to hiring Shed Unlimited to do my garage next!

I had a custom shed built on site. The workmanship was top, as was the professionalism of the workmen.  Highly recommend Sheds Unlimiited

Ilona Brandt-Tom from Ardmore PA

Great dealing with Sheds Unlimited. Visited the new site and saw the quality of work which was the same in the shed that was delivered yesterday, great. The delivery person was wonderful. Very friendly and knew what he was doing and how to get the shed in place. Dealing with Mark and Austin was so easy. They knew all the answers to the questions I had. I will deal with them if I need another shed.

Kim from Worcester, PA

We had an excellent experience with your company. From start to finish it was an easy and uncomplicated process. We ordered a 12x20 shed, it was built and arrived just as we ordered it. Ryan was our driver and he was awesome. The new shed needed to be placed against existing decking and Ryan placed it perfectly. We are 100% satisfied and would highly recommend Sheds Unlimited to anyone needing a new shed...garage...workshop. Great value and just a really easy company to deal with  during the entire process. 

Tim from Street, Md

Working with Sheds unlimited has been by far one of the best professional experiences I have ever had. At first we chose them for a garage to accommodate one a custom race boat we added to our fleet of yachts for charter and selected Sheds unlimited for there great price. Working with them prior to delivery was seamless and when our garage was delivered on April 12th the driver/installer arrived exactly when we where told he would. We actually videos the install as the driver transported our 26x12 foot garage through some tight spaces and did it with ease and total professionalism. I have already recommended Sheds Unlimited to a family friend and would to anyone considering a shed or garage for any application. You can use me as a reference anytime for any potential customers that may have concerns. The quality of the garage exceeded my expectations.

Capt. Paul S from Parsippany NJ

Had a great trip to PA and met with staff, picked the perfect shed. It was ready to be delivered in a week. The neighborhood watched the mule place the shed a lot of fun. The best part was the price, I priced the sheds for about a year. The 12x20 I bought was 2000.00 cheaper with deliver. Then any place in Connecticut. Highly recommend!!!

Pat from North Haven

I ordered a custom built 8x14 high barn style storage shed. I did a significant amount of research into quality and costs for comparable sheds. Sheds unlimited was nearly the cheapest and was by far and away the best shed I've seen. It has been installed for nearly a month now and I am still as blown away as i was when it was installed. All of the higher end details were covered, extra bracing on roof joists, solid complete construction.

There are a number of reviews discussing installation, I could not have imagined how easy and professional it would be. My driveway is narrow and uphill. The driver used the mule to bring the shed exactly where I wanted it without a scratch. I have personally recommended Sheds Unlimited to a few of my neighbors and I can't recommend them enough. If you are looking for a very high quality shed that was SIGNIFICANTLY cheaper than any of the local places--from chains like Lowe's, Home Depot and Agway--to smaller advertised shops--go no further. I am in northern NJ and while I had to pay for delivery it was still cheaper than the "Free Delivery" places... Don't waste your time elsewhere.

John Coyle from Morristown, NJ

I live in Flemington, NJ and we just ordered a Shed from Shed Unlimited and the entire process was awesome. We are so pleased with the service we received. The price was "unbeatable" and the installation was amazing. A one man job...incredible to see set up. Easy 1-2-3. The quality of the Shed is great. I highly recommend Shed Unlimited. Thank you for your service, the quality and everything.
