In naddition to what AL member services suggested, if you mean a gravel or concrete pad, then Landscaping or Excavation would be the category for gravel pads, or Concrete - Pouring and Repair or Concrete- Stamped would be the categories for concrete pads.

Sheds are also commonly just build on paver blocks or precast concrete piers (more likely for your size) under the specific support points (maybe with some crushed rock fill under the block) or on treated wood posts dug in the ground 3 feet or so.

Hot tubs you can also buy pads for them to sit on - both rigid and flexible mats.

Cost - the hot tub mats/pads are commonly $100-200 range - google Hot Tub Pad to find examples and sources.

Pavers and concrete commonly in the ballpark (assuming yard if fairly level where you want them) of about $3-10/SF for concrete depending on size of job (larger is cheaper per SF), and commonly something just under $10 on up to $20 or more per SF for stamped/decorative concrete or pavers. Of course, DIY on the pavers and your cost can come way down, ditto if the shed is build on a crushed rock pad (mroe stable than rounded gravel) or on piers or concrete block foundations.
