Should You Put a Sundial or Birdbath in Your Memorial Garden?

Putting together a memorial garden is a great way to remember the loss of a loved one. There are many different things you can do to set up your garden spot. Here are some things to keep in mind when figuring out how to put together your area.

Where Will You Place the Garden?

It is important you figure out where you want to place the garden and how big you want it to be. Depending on the size of your yard, you might want to make a spot out in the yard. If you want it to be a private spot, but it behind your home. If you want it to be on display, place it in the front yard.

What Will You Plant in Your Memorial Garden?

Some people want to have a garden that needs little care and upkeep. If that is the case, you’ll want to select bushes and plants that will grow back year after year. This is a good idea for those that do not have much time to invest in gardening.

Others want to have seasonal flowers that they replant from year to year. If that is the case, then take a look at your local nursery for plants that are in season.

You can also consider putting potted plants around the garden if you run out of room to plant in the ground.

Should You Have a Birdbath or Sundial?

If you have a large enough area, you might consider putting out an ornamental, yet functional garden piece. Two of our favorite things to put out would be either a birdbath or a sundial.

What to Consider When Putting Out a Birdbath

A birdbath is a good addition to your area, because it invites beautiful birds to your space. It is always comforting to see nature participate in your memorial garden. There are some things to consider when deciding to place it in your garden.

You will need to take the time to clean your birdbath when it gets dirty. Also, keeping it full of water is important. You should note that birds will bring seeds to your garden and you’ll have to keep up with extra weeding.

What to Consider When Putting Out a Sundial

Sundials are beautiful to display. Some people want to set them out just for the look of it. Others want a functional sundial that can be used to tell time. Depending on your uses will determine where you plan to place them.

Here at Phoenix Garden Memorials, we offer several lawn ornaments as well as urns, that will work well for your purposes.
