“That’s so nice. I would love to do that for my back garden.” Another user commented.

A third said: “That looks lovely. Great idea and colour!”

Andra then revealed in another TikTok video how she created the wall.

The mum used a five pack of c16 treated timber 2×3 – to make the wall and drilled them into the patio vertically to create the height of the wall.


Next she began to drill 45 treated timber softwood carcassing 1×2 slates horizontally across the taller ones to create a slated effect wall.

She then used Teak Oil all over the wall to prime it and the project was complete.

In total, Andra said the project cost her just £150 to complete.
