Following are the steps are taken to prepare your Shed site.
First and foremost, a location needs to be chosen for the shed pad. After that, Jenyns & Jenyns Contracting will provide you the experts for the Site Evaluation. These experts will then determine what and how will they create the best looking shed with a solid structure to boost with.
After you have decided your shed pad location, our team of experts will begin the installation work. Firstly, the grass is removed from that area and shed pad borders are installed. With special brackets and stakes, the borders are secured to each other and to the ground as well.
After getting done with the border installation, it’s time to use a power compactor to tamp the ground. This is done to prevent any settling in the gravel after the placement of the shed pad. In the case of the dirt under the pad is not compacted, it can result in an uneven surface for your structure.
Manual Dirt Compaction
So to address the problem, our skilled workers in addition to the use of the power compactor, manually tamps the edges and corners of the pad. This results in uniformed dirt compaction over the entire area. Hence, you don’t have to worry about the surface of the structure being uneven.
Our professional workers install a layer of landscaping fabric. This is done to make your shed free from weeds permanently. So you don’t have to spend extra money on dealing with weeds in order to maintain your shed.
Fill borders with Gravel
Now that the ground is successfully tamped, leveled and protected from weeds, it’s time to fill the area with crushed gravel.
In this step, we again require the use of power compactor to tamp the gravel down. What this does is create a level and solid surface. Therefore, your shed will stay compact for years to come.
