I have a few old ceramic kitchen sinks. I covered them with a tufa mix a few years ago......cement and peat......and they now look like old stone troughs.
currently I grow nemesis, diascias, pelargoniums etc in them but I intend to use them for alpines thus autumn.
For each trough you need to plant similarly required conditions. once grew a few alpines but will research again to grow some little "gems" there. A trough could house 6 to 8 alpinews and look fantastic.
whether you use your sinks for ponds or alpines is your choice. Why not have one pond and one alpine for now.
