My metal shed 10x8 kit has arrived. It even has floor kit included.
I am going to clear and level the ground for the shed base.

Which base would be better for the metal shed?
I am thinking of either slabs or concrete, but not sure which would be better option.

I have a few bags of cement, so with some sharp sand mix, it can be concret mix, and in the leveled wooden frame, in goes, and just level with the trowl?
What would be good mix ratio cement: sharp sand for good solid concrete?

But I have also some left over 3x2 slabs too. And with tarmac gravel and sharp sand, they could be laid and leveled.

What do you think? Any advice and info on this topic would be much appreciated. Thanks.
