Preparing the ground for a shed
by Alison Hunter
We are preparing the ground for a shed! However, there is a slight slope - about 20 degrees. What is the best way of dealing with this?
1. Levelling it out, by excavating the soil
2. Building the site up, by adding some soil or patio base material?
If we do the first thing, there will be a 'dip' down to the shed, which may give problems with water running down to the shed. However, the shed won't sit so high and may look better, as it's not so prominent. I'm probably answering my own question!
Presumably, it's better to build the foundation up, in view of the drainage?
