For those we've loved, and those we've lost, having a nice way to remember them is a wonderful idea to keep their memory alive. A memorial bench for a garden or a park is a great item for this purpose. They are comfortable and can start a conversation based on nothing more than the curiosity of those who didn't know the person the bench is dedicated to.

Buying Guide

Just as the name suggests, memorial garden benches are pieces of furniture that remembers someone who has passed away. They're generally placed in a garden or public place. However, many individuals choose to put them in their yards or gardens to memorialize those they love who have passed away. To ensure you're getting the best garden bench for your loved one, it's essential you do some homework ahead of time. With that in mind, we've put together this guide to help inspire your choices.

It's essential that you select appropriate materials for your memorial garden benches. Under many circumstances, a favorite choice for these benches is wood. However, they're made from a wide variety of materials. For example, they're available in iron, metal, synthetic materials, and concrete. The choice you make depends on where you're going to place the bench, if it's going to move, if it's for decorative purposes, and if it's going to be used for seating.

For example, if you’re going to use a traditional park bench style, these are larger and will are typically 60" long, 35" high, and 26" wide. Whereas concrete benches vary in sizes and could be as small as 21" high, 19" wide, and 51" long.

Everyone has different accommodations available for memorial garden benches on their property. For example, one homeowner may have cleared a space specifically for the bench. Another may have a small area under a tree they would like to use. Therefore, it's essential to measure the area that's available to ensure it will fit adequately.

Engraving the Sentiments on the Bench

Some of the popular engravings are:

  • "In Memory Of..."
  • "Goodbyes Are Not Forever"
  • “Gone but not forgotten, even though we are apart, Your spirit lives forever in my heart.”
  • “Those we love don’t go away”
  • "May you find peace in the arms of an angel”
  • “God has you in his keeping, I have you in my heart”

The sentiments on a garden bench's engraving undoubtedly complete its overall appearance and aesthetic. Some people like to include personal texts, quotes, pictures, scriptures, or a combination of all of these elements. No matter what your selection is, be sure to take your time during this step. In doing so, you’re capturing your sentiments and heartfelt memories about your loved one on this bench.

The addition of designs and styling is another way of adding details about your loved one to the memorial garden bench. Engraving can include the addition of decorative elements depicting their interests, work, or how they spent their time. For example, if your loved one was a firefighter, the addition of an emblem. Or, if they enjoyed gardening, you could include floral engravings.

Additional style considerations include whether or not you want the bench to look like a traditional park bench or a small back-less concrete bench. While the traditional park bench styles are comfortable if you’d like to use them, they don’t have as many decorative options. The concrete benches have more space on the seat for text, embellishments, and pictures. The remainder of the concrete bench can also feature embellishments around the edges, as well as on the legs.
