The Q&A Archives: how to build a portable utility garden sink

Question: I am living in California,
I am very love to work in garden, I would like to build a portable utility garden sink, which conveniently move around, beside that, I also can drain the wasted water back to my lawn and vegetable garden, is legal? where can I go to buy those tools? if I want to build by myself, I know in greenhouse catalog have selled this portable sink, but I want bigger & deeper sin

Answer: Each city and county has their own ordinances for gray water disposal but since you will be working outdoors and with outdoor plants (rather than washing dishes or clothes) there should not be any reason you cannot let the water drain right into your garden. I would imagine you could build a sink out of just about anything that holds water - wood, metal, etc. As for the frame, I think you'll find books in your library with step by step instructions and pictures. Or look up potting sheds on the internet. Most of these have sinks and you can get ideas from the pictures and drawings. Best wishes with your new project.
