2 belfast sinks to use


we moved house 6 months ago and the garden is nice but we are trying to put our stamp on it.

one thing we definitely want is more wildlife., I got 2 Belfast sinks off ebay, one is deeper than the other so I planned to use that as a pond.

I like the idea of alpines in the other but it occurs to me that alpines can be grown in all sort of pots, would it make more sense to make 2 ponds with the sinks, maybe in different parts of the garden?

    Could you somehow make it so one 'pond' flows into the other?  A little water feature/pond using a small pump.  Runny water is always far more healthy than stagnate water.. and the introduction of more oxygen will be beneficial to your underwater friends.

    Tbh that is what I was wondering. Defo needs further investigation although my missus has her eye on one to use as a planter
