Small Concrete Slab

I am in the process of pouring a small 8' x 8' slab in my yard as a footing for a shed. The shed will be used for an air compressor, lawn mower, and other lawn care equipment. Should I put down a vapor barrier? Also, how much of a layer of gravel should there be under the slab?

Small Concrete Slab

No vapour barrier. 4-6" of gravel for drainage.

Do not PM with questions that can be asked in a forum. I will not respond.
