Congratulations! You have found yourself in the perfect place to get the base for your new 8x6 garden building as this page is dedicated solely to helping you find the 8x6 Shed Base you need. If, however, you are using this as a starting point on your journey to becoming a shed owner, then can we also recommend you visit our wooden shed section to complete your project?
While this may not be the largest selection of shed bases, it is perfectly formed with both wooden and recycled plastic options. As Shed Buyer only works with established and reputable stores, you can also feel reassured that you are getting a quality product that will suit both your requirements and your budget.
Your shed base is very important to the longevity of your shed as it provides a flat, strong foundation. Putting your shed on uneven ground could lead to the integrity of the building’s structure being undermined and there’s nothing worse than spending the money only to find your shed door doesn’t shut properly anymore or the window won’t open. It is also incredibly important to do everything you can to reduce the possibility of damp invading your wooden shed, which is a real possibility, and putting your shed on a tailored shed base helps provide some airflow under the building to reduce this possibility significantly.
Both the wooden and recycled plastic styles of these 8x6 Shed Bases offer good alternatives to laying your own paving slabs to give the foundation you need to take the weight of your shed and its contents.
The wooden styles are preferable if you are looking to locate your shed on an area of ground which is currently uneven or on a slight slope as the ‘legs’ or stakes mean that the base can handle discrepancy in the land. The wooden bases are also quite popular with many gardeners as they provide a good match to the wooden shed that will sit on top. Once installed, it is sometimes hard to see where the shed ends and the base begins. The wooden bases do need to be the exact size, so please do check the measurements you require.
The recycled plastic styles come as ‘bricks’ for your shed to sit on, which can be cut to size if needed, which are installed usually using a click together approach over an anti-weed membrane. However, it is worth levelling the ground as much as possible before installation. You could also make the base slightly larger than the size of the shed and fill in the bricks with rocks to help drainage around the shed. The recycled plastic bricks don’t need any maintenance and can be re-used.
There are some things to consider before you make your decision but we hope you enjoy your visit to Shed Buyer and you find the 8x6 Shed Base you need; happy shopping.
