you can add this code to the functions.php of your WP theme

function restrict_admin()
{
	if ( ! current_user_can( 'manage_options' ) ) {
                wp_redirect( site_url() );
                exit;
	}
}
add_action( 'admin_init', 'restrict_admin', 1 );

use this code instead of the one above, otherwise the ajax.php will be blocked and some things will no longer work

add_action( 'init', 'wpse_182220_init' );
function wpse_182220_init() {

// Exit function if doing an AJAX request
if ( defined( 'DOING_AJAX' ) && DOING_AJAX ) {
return;
}
}
function restrict_admin() {

if ( ! current_user_can( 'manage_options' ) && ( ! defined( 'DOING_AJAX' ) || ! DOING_AJAX ) ) {
wp_die( __( 'You are not allowed to access this part of the site' ) );
}
}
add_action( 'admin_init', 'restrict_admin', 1 );

Why not just use a plugin to restrict admin access?
