I spent £10k doing up my garden with fake grass but didn’t think it through – now having a paddling pool’s a nightmare | The Sun

SHE spared no expense transforming her garden – with the total bill reaching almost £10,000.

But one thing Jehane Thomas didn't consider is where to put her drain, and she paid the price during the UK's latest heatwave.



Taking to TikTok, Jehane shared a video of herself emptying her family's paddling pool with a jug.

Writing over the video, she explained: "When you spent nearly £10,000 on a garden refurb to not be able to empty a pool as the drain is the other side of the garden and you don’t want to ruin the artificial grass."

"This pool cover better arrive soon cos i aint doing this again any time soon," she added in the video caption.

People quickly took to the comments section to offer their suggestions on how Jehane could avoid the arduous process of emptying the pool again.
