6ft x 3ft Base For A Shed, Greenhouse, Summerhouse or Log Cabin!
Our plastic shed base panels are the perfect alternative to a traditional wood or concrete shed base. Manufactured from highly durable recycled plastic, these strong,easy-to-install, rot-free and weatherproof panels are easily interlocked without any additional fixings to create a base for any garden building with a foot print of up to 6ft x 3ft.
Our eco-friendly shed bases are manufactured in the UK from 100% recycled plastic. Owing to our unique formulation, our incredibly strong but flexible blend of recycled plastic makes every foundation both weather and UV resistant. Its resilience against the sun, rain and head means that your shed base will not break down or rot over time which may be the case with more traditional foundations such as concrete or wood. With a specially designed cell structure our bases have a very large load baring capacity as well as being fully permeable which means that rain and other liquids will drain naturally away from your garden building, reducing the chance of surface water being absorbed and potentially rotting your shed.
On top of the previously mentioned benefits, our base panels are also incredibly simple to install thanks to their lightweight frame and slot & peg connection system which allows a full foundation to be laid in no time at all. You also have a choice on how to finish your shed base installation, you can fill the panels with decorative gravel for a french drain system or use soil and seed to create a grass effect or even leave it unfilled!
