As with any garden building, a Scotts Summerhouse needs to be erected onto a pre-prepared, level and stable foundation. However, in some circumstances, a concrete base is not feasible and can be cost prohibitive.
As an alternative, Scotts offers an eco-friendly and cost-effective solution to ensure your Summerhouse is stable.
A ground screw and timber joist base system is an excellent way to provide a safe and level foundation for your Summerhouse. Using ground screws takes a fraction of the time to install compared to an alternative concrete base.
Scotts works in partnership with The Ground Screw Centre to offer a complete package. Scotts has manufactured an adapted timber Summerhouse floor to offer the perfect base to work with the ground screws. And, there is no digging of foundations or mess and the base can be quickly installed.
A ground screw base offers a quick and effective solution and is environmentally friendly. And, if you plan to relocate your Summerhouse in the future, this provides the perfect option with no lasting impact on your garden.
Ground screws allow you to save time and money when preparing a solid base for your Summerhouse.
