These DIY swimming pools made of hay bales are exactly what you need this summer

April 14th, 2021

In a few months, it will be summer, and as much as we would want to, we couldn’t go to the beach yet.

This would be the second year that we are discouraged to go to crowded places. We can’t go to beaches, public pools, and resorts, or anywhere that we used to go.

Will this be another boring summer?

Well, maybe this year, it’ll be a bit better because we are all prepared at some point. In case we are not allowed to spend the summer outdoors, then why not spend it indoors?

DIY projects have been dominating homes for a while now.

People have started investing in DIY projects such as custom appliances, hobbies, celebrations, and even spending summertime indoors.

Do you have extra space in your backyard? Well, that would be the perfect spot for an indoor pool, right?

Yet, indoor pools are not cheap.

Of course, there are also alternative options such as DIY pools, but still, the materials that you will need for this aren’t cheap.

  • Bales of hay
  • Heavy-duty tarp
  • Heavy-duty tape or rope
  • Water

Now, layer the bales of hay the way you want it. If you have lots of bales available, you can create a bigger pool.

Then, just cover it with the tarp and secure it with tape or rope. Put the water, and that’s it! It’s an easy project, right?

Now, a lot of people might question this.

Of course, like many other brilliant ideas, there will be pros and cons.
