    Hi All

    I`ve just put together a double bin storage unit and it doesnt have a floor and its partly standing on some old plant beds soil (60cm deep by 150cm). Looking for something to use as a base, any suggestions for something cheap and easy to install that would do the job?

    Thanks

    Just dig it out a bit and chuck some crushed stone down (scalpings, mot type1 etc), cost you about £10-£20 for the bagged stone from B&Q/wickes

    Think he means from front to back, 60cm x 150 cm area.
