Shed Issues

We have just had slabs put down for a 4ft x 4ft shed on our lawn.

I was going to cut out a small section of lawn all around the slabs, to create a thin border and then I intended to fill it with small pebbles to stop any grass or weeds growing there. I thought this was also good for drainage as the rainwater would fall roughly onto these borders and not the grass.

However, I do not remember every having seen anyone do this before and would appreciate if this is the right thing to do. 

I've seen lots of photos of sheds on the internet and it seems most people just let the grass grow up to the slabs, which I would have thought would make it very difficult to cut the grass with a lawn mower.

This is a new garden so I want to do things right. Does anyone have any suggestions.

    I'd do grass up to the slabs. Grass will grow into pebbles. Mowers and pebbles are a poor mix. Just make sure the grass is level or above the slabs or use a strimmer
