Materials you’ll need:
- Hard plastic kiddie pool
- Pavers or bricks
How to make it:
Dig a hole in the ground where you will place the pool. The size and depth of the hole should be the size of your plastic pool.
Then make up your mind how big you want your brick paver border and dig out the area for the border. Keep in mind that you should go only as deep as the depth of your pavers. You can go as far out as you want with your border.
After this, arrange the pavers in a decorative pattern of your liking and fill the crevices between the pavers with sand or dog-friendly ground cover plants.
