I made a DIY pool in my back garden on the cheap, it’s divided opinion but looks fab with a few inflatables thrown about | The Sun

A DIY whizz has revealed how she made her own built-in swimming pool on the cheap.

The woman, who goes by Jelly on TikTok shared the easy way she made her own pool in time for summer.

In the clip, she penned: "DIY back garden pool."

The DIY whizz first started by putting up a bog-standard swimming pool.

She then decided where she wanted to put it in the garden, and began to dig out a hole big enough to fit the pool in.

Jelly then made a wooden border around the hole to make sure it didn't sink in.

After inflating the pool, Jelly placed it inside the hole and covered the border with lots of stones.

To make the pool feel like a proper tropical paradise, she added exotic plants around it and of course, added some inflatable flamingos and palm trees.

Jelly who shared the hack on her TikTok account @jellyandjonny, now had the perfect spot to relax in while the sun beams down.

However, not everyone was convinced it was a great idea.

She said: “When I’m told it’s a “bad idea” to install a pool in my garden in the UK, then there’s a heatwave.” 

Zoe later added: “Fully zero regret.”

The young woman revealed that it cost her just £300 to build her own pool, as she used recycled materials.

She explained: “Also this is a recycled cow trough, it has a cover.
