She wrote: "I’m confused. Can I find 1 or 2 workmen to level and tile an area of the garden in these times?"
And while some followers were keen to offer their suggestions, others quickly let her know the work was "non essential".
One wrote: "Just why though? No grey needed. Not essential, not needed, saving lives is and that’s not a grey area. It’s simple, non-essential, do not do it!"
Another said: "This is so non essential."
A third commented: "Considering you could not believe people were still going out a few days ago, I cannot believe you are expecting people to come out to fix some paving slabs for you !! Practice what you preach."
Following the lockdown announcement, the government has said that builders on sites should continue to work but that they must practice social distancing.
The decision has been questioned by many and yesterday Piers Morgan accused ministers of "putting money above lives" by allowing builders to keep working.
Tamzin's post comes days after she urged fans to stay in doors amid the deadly bug.
She previously wrote online: "I can’t believe how many of you are still going out!"
Tamzin has two daughters with her ex-husband and Lucifer actor Tom Ellis: Marnie, seven, and Florence, 11.
The pair married in 2006 and split in 2014 after he reportedly cheated on her with Lost actress Emilie de Ravin.
However, the star has since found love with toyboy Tom Child, 28, who she has dated for two years after meeting at a yoga class.
