10 Best Paddling Pools & Garden Swimming Pools for 2019

In the sizzling heat what better way is there to enjoy your garden space than dipping your toes in a paddling pool or taking a lap around an above ground pool before retiring to your Daybed.

Although summer isn’t here yet, the best deals are! Prices on paddling pools plummet during winter (although that February heat wave almost convinced me to get mine out for the kids).

Not all pools are built alike and if you’re looking for something a bit more special you’ve come to the right place. PatioMate has been hunting out the best deals for dipping, paddling and swimming to bring you the best the market has to offer.

We’ll start with the bestsellers available via Amazon and then our favourite picks beneath! Make sure you’ve got your tap adaptor as well.

The built in sunshade is designed to help protect children from harmful UV rays but we at PatioMate recommend using sun cream, hats and avoiding the midday sun to keep your little ones safe and happy during the roaring heat.
