Preparation & Installation

Shed Base

A gravel base is what we recommend for your Crawford shed.

The purpose of a gravel base:

  • Keep the shed high and dry, 
  • Provide proper support
  • Allow water to drain away from your shed
  • Allow airflow underneath the shed.
  • Ensure all windows and doors open and close properly

Size of base:

We recommend the base to be 12” inches bigger than the size of your shed, (example 10 x10 shed, the base would be 11 x11)

Gravel size:

¾”- 1” clear stone


3-4” of gravel


Excavate 3-4”, place geotextile landscape fabric down and then spread the gravel evenly. You may have more gravel on one end of your pad than the other because of a difference in the grade which is fine. The area must be completely level. In some cases, a retaining wall may be required to support the base.

**Most importantly make sure that the entire base is level**
