Do You Need a Solid Foundation for a Garden Shed? 

If you’re interested in installing a shed in your backyard, a solid foundation will be one of the most important components. Without a solid foundation, your garden shed may become unlevel or could absorb water through the exposed shed floor which could lead to mold or mildew growth. Here are a few tips for making sure your garden shed has a strong foundation from the outset so that you can get the most out of your outdoor investment.

How to Achieve a Solid Foundation for Your Garden Shed

  • Choose Your Shed’s Location

    Your very first step will be to pick a location for your garden shed. Double-check the zoning laws in your area to make sure your plans fit into any size, material, or other restrictions your community may have. You’ll also want to steer clear of tree roots and make sure you have easy access to utilities if you want your shed to have them.

  • Pick Your Foundation Type

    Most shed foundations are one of two categories: an on-grade foundation or a frost-proof foundation. On-grade foundations are usually cheaper and faster to build and are built directly on the ground. Frost-proof foundations, on the other hand, can hold more weight and will therefore cost more.

  • Pick Your Shed Size

    The size of your shed will help to determine which foundation type you should use. You should choose a size based on what you want to do with your shed.

  • Check the Level

    Throughout the entire shed construction process, continue checking that your garden shed’s foundation is level.

  • Consult with a Professional
