I'm looking for some advice on building a 6x4 ft shed base using pavers.
My garden is at a bit of a gradient, sloping both downwards and to the right, you can get an idea from this photo:
(The lowest point is about 8 inches lower than the highest)
As you can see, I (probably foolishly) decided to go ahead and start digging a foundation; my plan was to follow some of the advice I'd seen on a website and lay a sub base layer, and then pavers on top. This would provide me with a level surface for standing my new shed on.
My dilemma is regarding how I deal with the slope - my original plan was to take soil away so that it would all be the same level as the lowest point, and perhaps adding a small retaining structure (maybe a sleeper) at the highest side to account for the drop off.
Do you think this is the best way to approach it? Should I instead be considering adding height to the lowest point? I'm really just trying to keep the job as simple as possible as I'm not all that experienced at DIY.
I would really appreciate your comments :-)
