This Shed Base with Metal Spikes from Forest provides a quick resolution to a level base and to keep your shed isolated from the ground.

This wooden shed base is quick and easy to build and does away with the hassle of laying slabs or concrete bases.

  • It requires minimal DIY skills and takes only a short time to put together.
  • Once built, it provides a level and sturdy base which is raised off the ground to protect the shed floor from becoming damp.
  • The timber used has been pressure treated to guarantee protection against rot for 15 years.
  • Made from natural wood and supplied with metal spikes which can be sunk straight into the ground and will keep the base from moving.
  • Only suitable for use with Forest sheds of the corresponding size.

The Forest Garden Shed Base is available in the following sizes:

  • 4ft x 3ft
  • 5ft x 3ft
  • 6ft x 4ft
  • 7ft x 5ft
  • 7ft x 7ft
  • 8ft x 6ft

Metal spikes need improving
James M
The timber and instructions were fine. The problem was the metal spikes. Once you level the frame there is nothing to stop each spike sinking further into the ground. The disadvantages are (1) your frame comes into contact with the ground and is exposed to moisture (even pressure treated timber will rot eventually) (2) if you're on unlevel ground your structure may lean to one side. Other kits I've used have metal plates with cotter pins. The spike fits through the metal plate and the cotter pin is inserted allowing the frame to be supported off the ground and in a level position. I bought these separately and tossed the supplied spikes in the bin.
