The Memorial Garden construction at St. Mary and St. Martha Episcopal Church in Buford is perhaps our most rewarding project. We did the design work and serve on the garden team on a volunteer basis, while the construction of the garden was a contracted project for Greenland Landscape & Masonry.
The garden has taken on a life of it’s own. It is a place for remembrance and burial of cremated remains of our parishioners, as well as a place for worship, gardening, meditation, and gathering outdoors.
Church cremation gardens will increase in popularity, as people realize there is no better final resting place than among your Church community.
We would like to assist other Churches and religious communities with the design, development, and construction of their cremation gardens.
Design of a Memorial Garden: Guidelines
A memorial garden is different than a monument. A garden should be a place of comfort, remembrance, and community, whereas a monument is an object to look at; a visual reminder.
