Building up shed base

I'm planning on putting a new shed in my garden and am just in the process on knocking down the old one which was falling apart and rotten.

For the base I like the look of the Hawklok plastic base system. However the ground this will sit on needs to be raised and levelled a fair bit as the door will have to open onto the patio which is a fair bit higher than the ground the shed will sit on.

I don't really want to go down the route of laying down loads of concrete to build up the ground, would piling up hardcore and gravel do the job?
