Basic Details To Notice When Concerning Commemorative Gardens

Creating memorial gardens is a wonderful way to honor a deceased loved one. It also offers a lovely place for people to go and remember a lost friend or family member. However, it will also require careful planning and some thought.

Consider the life of the person being memorialized and ask yourself a few questions about their favorite things. Consider how much space is available and how it will be used. Gardens can be as large or as small as space and funds will allow.

Consider a place for people to sit. A nice bench or variety of benches will make an excellent choice. Including the favorite flowers and colors in this garden is a great way to remind people of their loved one. Most people associate certain smells with fond memories. If "grandma" for example, always had roses on the kitchen table, roses are sure to remind Grandma's loved ones of her. Including them in the garden is truly a wonderful idea.

Remember when planting to follow the basic rules of tallest plants in the back, and shortest in the front. This will help to create a professional looking space that is inviting and comfortable.

Make sure there is a source of water nearby. Otherwise maintaining plants will require water to be brought in from outside. This may result in a loss of many plants, especially during warmer seasons. Encourage visitors to take clippings as a reminder of the lost loved one. How lovely it is to have a living plant around the house or yard in tribute to someone we love but have lost.

Visit as often as possible and be sure to take good care of the space. Mow and prune regularly and prepare to have a sacred space that is a joy to all visitors.
