Foundations for a garden shed

Postby hjosen » Tue Jul 01, 2008 10:14 am

Hi all,

I need some help, as I want to do my garden shed foundations. It will be a large area 20ft by 10ft and I need this raised by 3inches.
As you can image this can be quite expensive to do with concrete, I wanted to know if there were other cheaper options available.

A friend suggested that I use gravel for the footings and gain the height I need from this, following by a wet mix of cement, on top. I’m not to sure about this hence asking the question,

Thanks in advance for all your help
