Basic Details To Expect When Considering Commemorative Gardens

Memorial gardens are a perfect way to honor lost loved ones. They are beautiful places to sit and reflect, and remember those who have passed on to the next world. Be sure to take the time to plan and consider the space before beginning.

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.

Think about and plan for people's comfort. Make sure there is a place to sit and think. Benches are a popular choice. Some may even consider picnic tables or swings, depending on their personal preference. Make sure the deceased is represented in what is planted. If Grandpa loved irises, be sure there are lots of irises in the garden and everyone will think about him as soon as they arrive at the park. This is a great way to bring people together into conversation about the loved one who has passed. This can bring about healing.

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.

Take care of the garden. Do not allow it to go into disrepair. Consider available water and plant accordingly. Request and accept help from friends and relatives and suggest they take clippings to remind them of their loved one.

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.
