Facts You Should Notice When Planning 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.

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.

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.

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.
