Basics You Should Expect When Setting Up 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.

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.

As is the case with all gardens, make sure to keep larger plantings towards the back and shorter plants towards the front. This will create a more professional and comfortable area, where people are invited to sit. Some may even choose to plant trees and bushes in one section and flowers in a separate formal bed. It does not matter, as long as the end result is pleasing and reminds loved ones of the deceased loved one.

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.

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.
