Can I lay slabs directly on compacted soil as shed base?

Post by hassan424 » Mon Nov 07, 2016 10:34 pm

Hi,

I had a shed which was on a plastic base - this has been removed and now all that is left is the extremely hard compacted earth that was underneath the base. I want to put down a new shed, but it is larger than the old one.

There is an unused patio right next to the patch of compacted earth, as such I was wondering if I could just put slabs down onto the earth and make them level and then put the shed on top?

Or do I have to dig and add mortar etc?

Any advice/help would be much appreciated.

Regards

I would lay down a vapour barrier first and if possible lay slaps on sand.
