What To Learn When Setting Up Gardens Of Memory

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.

Think about the things that were important to the person who has passed. Consider their favorite colors, scents, flowers, and even hobbies. The more that is added into the space based on this, the more it will make people remember them. The garden can be huge or tiny and it makes no difference. Plan according to available space and budget.

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.

Always plant the largest plants towards the back and the shortest to the front, as with any garden. This will create a professional and pleasant place that is attractive and inviting.

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.

Be sure to visit often and keep up with mowing, planting, and pruning. Encourage friends and family to visit and add to the garden if they want to. This is sure to be a place everyone loves and will enjoy visiting often.
