Laying paving slabs for shed base,cool wood projects to do,basic bird houses - Good Point

You may not think this would be a problem if you had a plastic or metal shed but you’d still suffer from not positioning it on a level, solid surface.
Although our wooden sheds have a floor, it is still recommended they are built on a suitable, solid and level base in your garden. Concrete bases are probably best prepared by a professional, but they do offer a solid, level and permanent base for your shed. Your wooden shed can be placed on an existing patio, or you can lay a new one especially for it. Specifically designed to provide a firm, durable and well-drained platform for garden buildings, the Ecobase is the ultimate base for your new shed. If you choose the first option you need only decide which of the above type of garden shed base is suitable for you. All these methods are suitable but buying a shed base kit from us is undoubtedly the easiest method of all.
It may seem like unnecessary hard work and expense but it is vital to ensure you position your shed on a secure base.


Damp from the ground will seep into a wooden shed and rot it far faster than it would do if it was positioned on a shed base. Bad weather can make the ground sodden and lead to a insecure and even unsafe shed – not the ideal feature to have in your garden. We offer a variety of shed base kits or alternatively you can attempt to create one yourself, or employ a workman to construct one by using slabs or concrete.
Unless you are quite handy in the garden, laying a new patio is probably best done by a professional, but as long as it’s level, it will do.
Buying a shed base kit is an easy, quick option that gives you a stable, secure foundation for your shed without any hassle.
This requires more work but it is preferable if you have plans to erect a large shed or garden building. I built a base for my sisters shed out of breezeblocks as I had to build one side up about a foot over the other, and just spent an hour cladding it - looks like its sitting on a wooden plinth, you'd not even know there were blocks behind it. If you put your shed directly on the ground it won’t be as safe or stable and it won’t last as long as it would if placed on a base.


Also all floorless metal and plastic sheds require a solid, level base so that they can be anchored to it.
The Portabase features spikes on each corner, allowing it to be hammered into the ground for a sturdy base.
Measure out the area your shed will need (allow overhang on all sides) and mark it out with string. You’ll need to dig out the ground where the base is required and add some hardcore before creating a timber frame to slot into the space. Top tip: Lay plastic beneath your Portabase and fill with pea gravel to aid drainage and stop anything growing through and into your shed. Only issue I have is that they are 4 inches high, which means something could potentially get under shed and live there!
