My garden was dying so I decided to give it a drastic makeover – I even built my own professional-looking patio | The Sun

A DIY pro has revealed how she gave her garden a drastic makeover, even building her own professional-looking patio – and people can’t believe it’s the same space. 

Charlotte shared that she was sick of staring at her run-down garden, covered in dying grass and with little privacy from her neighbours. 

So she decided to give it a major glow-up, even building her own raised patio and hot tub area. 

Taking to TikTok, she said: “Garden makeover #gardengoals.”

During the one-minute reel, Charlotte shared a glimpse at what her garden looked like before. 

Mostly covered in browning grass, the outdoor space looked like it was rarely used, with the only piece of furniture, a kids’ slide, placed in the far lefthand corner.

And while one side had a wooden fence running down it, the other only had a chainlink fence separating her side from her neighbours. 

The savvy homeowner then went on to show how she transformed the space, first ditching their dying lawn and building the base of their new raised patio. 

This appears to have been built on top of a foundation of soil, concentrate and bricks, before being covered in on-trend wooden panelling. 

Large grey patio stones were placed across the top, as well as along one side of the garden to create a large path and second patio area.

Charlotte also raised her fences, before covering them all in on-trend horizontal wooden panelling.  

After covering the final third of her garden in artificial grass, she finished off her makeover by adding in a Lay-Z-Spa hot tub, an eight-seater outdoor dining table and an egg chair. 

She’d also built two raised flowerbeds to sit at the front of the patio and added a small picnic table on the grass for her kids to enjoy.  

Fans loved the transformation, with Charlotte’s reveal gaining more than 161,100 likes and 1.2 million views.

A third added: “Love it…just doesn’t look like the same gardens at all…so much bigger and utilised space so well.”

“Wow that’s some glow-up well done,” someone else put. 

Although not all were impressed, with another adding: “Personally not my cup of coffee. Feel like it’s too much in a small section. The minimalism side is coming out of me.”
