Erecting an Argos metal shed in garden and help needed!

Shed building

Hello folks!

I'm very inexperienced at DIY, and carpentry and all that, and I need some guidance about erecting a shed in the garden, if you've the time to help.

I'm buying a metal shed from Argos for just over £100 ... l+shed.htm

I'm mystified by the base and floor. I want to build it directly on grass and not say a gravel pit, as it's the cheapest option.

So how do I go about making the (well actually it's not me doing the work as I'm disabled, I'm hiring a relative) base and floor, in terms of what I need to buy?

I understand I'll need a base on which I need to lay wood of some type, yes? I've been looking at this plastic 'cell' type base as shown here : ... +shed+base

Is this suitable to lay on the grass?

After this I'll need the floor material, is this correct? What material and how much? How is the shed and floor fastened to this base material?

Hope you can help, and thanks for reading.
