Site Work Requirements

Chapin Sheds can provide professional preparation services to prepare your site (prices will vary depending on the size and slope of your chosen site).


Do-It-Yourself by following these guidelines

  • Dig out the grass 3" - 5" and create a level area 12" larger on each side, larger than the size of your structure.
  • Fill in the area with 3/4" clean crushed stone to allow for the water to drain away from your building. Make sure you level the pad.
  • A 4x4 pressure-treated edge may be helpful to eliminate the stone from washing away but is not required.

What should I do to prepare my yard?

Make sure we have enough room to deliver your new shed. Our delivery team must have at least 3 feet of working are on each side, depending on the width of your structure.

Remove any obstructions. Please note that there must not be any tree limbs or branches, shrubs or fences, or utility lines that would prohibit access for the delivery of the shed.
