Functionality and elegance

For all lovers of greenery, the garden is, even before being decorative, a place to live fully, in which to spend one’s free time and to take care of. But taking care of the garden does not only mean arranging the outdoor furniture in it that make it welcoming, nor creating plays of color with planters and vases: the maintenance of the green includes assiduous and even demanding work, while frequently turning into pleasure for those who make them and gives life to the desired space. Working the land, irrigating, cultivating plants or giving life to a personal garden in which growing vegetables and vegetables are all frequent operations that require the constant availability of running water: for this purpose garden sinks come to the aid, structures with tub and taps usually leaning against the external walls of the house that guarantee running water without having to go inside the house for each operation. The functionality of the garden washbasins does not prevent them from also having a high decorative effect: from the simplest models to the finely decorated ones, the garden sinks can adapt to any space, for high practicality. With the arrangement of agarden sink it will no longer be necessary to go inside your home, with the risk of getting dirty, to perform many of the small operations that are necessary for those who live their green space: washing small work tools, washing fruit and vegetables just picked, fill buckets and watering cans for small irrigation operations, or simply wash your hands before resting and sipping a drink in your outdoor living room.

The perfect tub


There are very different models on the market, which adapt to different types of spaces and needs. From a strictly functional point of view, the first difference is made by the size of the tub, which must not be too bulky, but at the same time must be spacious enough to carry out all the small jobs that are needed in it.

For extremely small spaces, it is possible to opt instead for corner baths, which allow you to make the most of the available resources. Where space allows, the tubs with attached shelf for placing small items to dry or to wash are particularly functional and practical. The tubs can be placed against the wall, which provides them with the only form of support, or have legs and structures on the ground, which also allow the space between the legs to be exploited to create drawers or small compartments in which to store detergents and useful tools.

The materials


Garden sinks must be made with resistant materials, as a structure designed to last over time and to be exposed to atmospheric agents continuously, in every season.

To keep the sink in excellent condition even for a long time, it is possible to periodically clean it with the most suitable products, chosen on the basis of the material itself. In periods of non-use, for example during the colder months, it is advisable to cover the sink with a cloth in water-repellent material, to avoid

Garden sinks: Purchase and installation


At the time of purchase, first of all make sure that the sink measurements are compatible with those of the area in which you want to install it, to avoid unpleasant surprises. The choice must be made taking into account the functionality and practical needs as regards the shape and conformation of the tank, while as regards the material it is good to take into account both the aesthetic factors and the care and maintenance required, to avoid the purchase of a sink that turns out to be too demanding and ends up being neglected, with damage to its structure and negative effects on the state of conservation. Since these are fixed structures with complex installation, the delivery of the sink and its installation will usually be taken care of by the point of sale. Furthermore, before making the purchase, it is advisable to inquire about the maintenance and warranty conditions offered by both the point of sale and the manufacturer. Finally, the cost of the sink will be further discriminating, even if the great variety offered by the market allows to identify the optimal solution for each space: the size and value of the material used are mainly influencing.
