Create Your Garden
A memorial garden provides a long-lasting tribute to a loved one who has passed away, as well as offers a place for the survivors to remember and to heal. The garden can be as small as a single tree or perennial plant or as large as an oversized flower bed or garden with many different flowers, shrubs and trees. Make your garden a special place to be and a reminder of your loved one by filling it with their favorite things – flowers, an inscribed stone, and a special tree that will continue to grow through the seasons.
