Basics You Should Notice When Concerning 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.

Give some consideration to the things the person being honored loved, and incorporate them into the garden. The space can be as large or small as people want. Be sure to consider cost. A lovely small area will likely be much nicer than a large neglected one.

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.

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.

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.
