For this Spudulica home and garden (spudulica.co.uk) blog we are focusing on the applicationfor a shed/ outdoor room base.

The area for the garden room previously was a bed left to its own devises for 2 years. Fairly mature plants had gone wild. This was cleared and the bed taken down to bring it down to the level of the paving.

 

The area was then also levelled, and geotextile membrane placed down. Then the EcoGrid was laid down for the footprint of the garden room. A small amount of sand and gravel was added in to the matrix of the EcoGrid to stop any shifting sideways when the structure of the garden room was being erected.

The EcoGrid will provide a stable and strong reinforcement for the sandy soil underneath the shed, helping to stop movement and with the longevity of the project. As EcoGrid is a fillable grid this also allows us to plant around the shed. When the structure is finished soil can be added and then seeds and plants added to grow up the garden room; returning some nature to that part of the garden.
