I transformed my neglected garden for summer, we swapped our lawn for fake grass & used bargains from B&M and Lidl | The Sun

A WOMAN has revealed how she transformed her neglected garden into the perfect hang spot just in time for summer.

Rae took to TikTok to document the transformation where she switched out her lawn for artificial grass and used bargains from B&M and Lidl.

In the final clip of the transformation, Rae said: "So our garden transformation journey has finally come to an end.

"It's been 58 days, almost two months, since I started this garden transformation."

She then showed a clip of her derelict uphill garden, which had broken fencing around the patio, an old furniture set, lots of weeds and uneven grass,

At the top of the garden lay a rotting shed and fencing covered in ivy.

But the savvy mum was determined to get it in better condition before summer.

Rae and her dad pulled out the old lawn and swapped it for artificial grass and created a sensory garden, using windmills from B&M and a sandpit she bagged from Lidl.

She also nabbed some mini gnome statues and mushrooms to place in her adorable fairy garden she made for her daughter.

The DIY whizz took out the broken fence by her patio, de-weeded the area and gave her furniture a good clean.
