Putting A Shied Up ( Drainage )

In a few weeks I will be putting a 13' X 15' shied up, but before it goes up I need to put a base of stone for drainage under it. In heavier rains water stands under the old shield. I need to address this problem for this is where the new one is going. It is on a slight slop with a hill behind it, yes it is getting hit by 2 direction so I would like to put a 6 inch base under it.

If you can gave me some advice on how to do this it would be very helpful.

Re: Putting A Shied Up ( Drainage )

If this area is on a slope as you say, could you cut the area level, fill with six inches or so of stone, and bed a perforated pipe in the stone, then trench that pipe to daylight?

That is the approach I would take.
