What To Know When Setting Up Memorial 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.

Make sure there are places for people to sit. This will encourage people to stay for a while and reflect. This is important for the elderly, and/or those who have difficulty standing for long periods of time. Colors, scents, and specific flowers that the deceased loved can be incorporated into the theme, or even made the main theme of the garden. A person who loved roses may have a garden filled with many different variety of roses. A lifetime military man or woman may be honored with a space filled with flowers that represent the colors of their flag. There are endless themes that may be created in order to personalize the space.

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.

Consider whether running water is available. If it is not, consider plants that require less watering. This is a good way to make it less likely to lose plants from neglect. Allow visitors to take clippings from flowering bushes and trees that remind them of the person being memorialized. This will allow them to keep of memory of their loved in their own home.

Visit the living memorial often and enjoy the accomplishment, both of the creation and the life it honors. Encourage others to visit and help with the planting. This type of a memorial is one that gives back to those who appreciate what the past gifts to the future.
