Construction of the base
Make sure any over hanging trees and bushes are cut back to allow at least a good 12" around the actual base, the base must be firm, level and designed to situate the floor of the selected garden shed.
Carefully marking out the exact size which is needed for the garden building base using the markers and string, check the diagonal measurements and make sure these are the same size.
Now level and compact the ground making sure its level in all directions, the less bumps and imperfections will make the end result far superior.
Lay a dry mix of sand and cement ensuring that it has been raked and level in all directions, always start in one corner and work outwards. Bed the first paver in place and level it at each corner, make sure there isn't any rocking motion, if all is well move onto the next pavers.
The slabs must be perfectly level across the whole base in order for the garden shed to spread the load equally and to avoid any subsidence
