A cremation garden is a quiet place of peace and beauty within many cemeteries where a loved one’s remains may be placed without concern for later desecration, development, or concern with permits or permission requests.
Cremation gardens are dedicated spaces found in contemporary cemeteries. They feature flowers and ornamental shrubs meticulously maintained by cemetery grounds keepers. A cremation garden provides assurance that a loved one’s remains is protected and honored in a place of beauty.
Another valuable benefit of a cremation garden is their protected and designated areas for the scattering of ashes. To complement the scattering of ashes in a garden, an accompanying plaque, marker, monument or other memorial is placed in the garden for a perpetual and permanent memorialization of a loved one.
