Using Old Sinks As Planters

One way to recycle old sinks from your bathroom or kitchen is to use them in your garden to plant succulents in. These sinks make a great border around your garden and add to the look of the garden. Succulent plants don't need much water. It is easy to use the sink and they have a drainage system. Just dig a hole in the ground and place the sink and the drainage pipe in the hold. Adjust the sink to sit straight and fill the hole up with dirt. Now you can just add dirt to the bowl of the sink and plant succulent plants in the sink. On the top of the sink, you can add a decorative shell or even small pots. What I like about planting in sinks is the fact you can use the space in your garden. There are some places in all gardens that plants just won't grow. The sinks make it easy to use this space and also give your garden a unique look.

That is such a cool idea, I know someone throwing away a sink, and I'm gonna take it, and use this idea!

Thank you so much. They do make cute planters for your yard and it is a good way to recycle old items and not throw them away.

I like this. I have an old sink already buried in the yard. I was going to make a fountain out of it but I'm not sure that's going to work due to the way it was damaged (IE why it ended up as yard ornament to begin with)

I think I'm going to do this you say here. Thanks :)
