Lightweight construction blocks, concrete slabs or posts are also suitable for the foundation. They need to be dug partially into the ground and levelled before installing the garden shed in order to assure that it remains stable.
Every DIY garden shed includes an installation manual that shows the wall elements and describes the main installation steps. This installation manual is accessible under the product description link on the home page. All installation manuals are in English and Spanish.
