We need an outdoor utility sink when gardening, cleaning, washing vegetables, or making crafts. There are many different types of garden sinks, but DIY sink designs are the best. They personalize outdoor home spaces and save money. Check out the Lushome collection of handmade sinks that improve the functionality of backyards and bring convenient additions into outdoor living spaces.

A simplified portable garden sink hooked to a garden hose is a popular design idea among gardeners and artisans. Another option is to mount a more permanent sink on the side of the house, or a garden shed. This utility sink design provides a source of water and a place to work. A utility sink with a potting bench makes things even more comfortable when working in the garden. These types of sinks people make from weather-resistant materials, like pressure-treated wood, bricks, and stones.
