10 x 8 Base for Plastic Keter Shed Base

Postby Nathsx » Sat Feb 18, 2017 9:33 pm


New here and after some advice, regarding a base for a plastic Keter shed i intend on buying but before that i need to get a base in place.

A few pictures of the proposed base location follow to give an idea.

Ideally i want to build the base level up to the existing slab level which is circa 150mm above where the ground level is now.

Im looking for advice on how to go about bringing up the level, i was thinking about using the "council" slabs which are 50mm thick.This gives us 100mm to fill with either sharp sand or another material?
The plastic shed could then be fixed down into the slabs to stop it flying away.

Does this seem a reasonable way of going about it or am i better spashing out and doing a proper concrete base? Other ideas consideredi had looked at plastic shed bases but im not sure if i could just level the existing ground and place the plastic base down.

Are there any other aspects to consider such as drainage?
