Yard Shed and Portable Garage Pad Prep Instructions
Preparation for your backyard shed or portable car garage is an important procedure. First, you will need to prepare a level area to place the yard shed or prefab car garage. Sheds Unlimited recommends using 3/4″ stone inside a border prepared with pressure treated 4×4’s or 6×6’s. Please insure that the pad is level and square.

To ensure that your yard shed or prefab car garage will be properly protected for the elements, the shed pad should be at least one foot longer and one foot wider than the actual size of the shed you have purchased or intend to purchase.
See photos of a prepared stone pad for a yard shed.
Please Note: Stone pads are only recommended for outdoor storage barns and sheds (yard sheds), portable one car garages, two story sheds and garages and modular double wide garages. If you are ordering a detached prefab car garage, a Garage with an Attic or Loft space or a Two Story Detached Garage, then the building must be placed on a concrete pad.
