Memorial Stones and Rocks are not just for the Cemetery -- Home and Garden too
Long since mankind has existed, we have always had the need to commemorate special events in our lives. Whether it be a personal loss or accomplishment, such as a birth or a passing, or even an event that affects a whole society, we have always documented the happenings for ourselves and, whether we were aware of it or not, our future generations as well. This action is actually what has helped the overall progression of our species, as we go back to learn from the past to benefit our future. The collective memorials to people and events of times past are now the tools and resources that we learn from today. With that said, it is clear to see the importance of creating tributes, even if they only have sentimental value to an certain group of individuals, as they provide a link for our future descendants to the past, and a way for our memory to live on in the future.
Memorial garden rocks offer an interesting and beautiful alternative to traditional monuments. These beautiful stones are made of cast materials, to help create unforgettable tributes. The stones are offered in a variety of styles, from larger boulder replications to smaller, flat stones that would be appropriate for a number of applications, such as placement in the home garden or to accent a gravesite. The larger, boulder-style rocks are made out of a durable, cast stone, and are actually hollow inside. This feature does not mean that they are any less resilient than natural boulders. They actually have an advantage to natural stones in that they are lighter and less expensive to transport. The material is so durable that it can sustain the shape for many, many years to come. They are treated with a panted color process that ensures the color of the stone will not fade, but instead look more natural with the passage of time as the elements work their magic. There are actually a variety of colors to select from, to help the stone accent or elegantly blend with the surrounding landscape. One of the most impressive features of these stones is the optional, discreet memorial chamber, which can hold cremation ashes or small mementoes. The chamber is made of a strong PVC material, to ensure that it protects the treasured contents from the outside elements. These stones also feature a complimentary bronze plaque, which is recessed into the surface of the stone, and features cast text, and an anti-theft eyelet. The large collection of memorial garden rocks will help create a beautiful tribute or landscape accent that will truly enhance virtually any setting.
Our need to memorialize the special events in our lives is a trait that is not learned, but perhaps simply in our genetics. In that essence, the memorial rocks not only reflect the beauty of nature, but our natural tendencies to document and preserve our story as well. While this practice of memorialization may be as long-existent as we are, these new memorial options can help create remarkable tributes that will last for many, many years to come.
