When a loved one dies, placing a heart-shaped garden stone in your yard is a personal yet comforting reminder of that person who now lives in your heart. Made out of marble, resin, hand cast stone or concrete, garden stones are durable and waterproof and can last for many years.
The heart-shaped memorial stones offer special symbolism as hearts show affection from the living for those who died. Two hearts joined are also extremely special as they symbolize marriage or a committed relationship. These are perfect for families who want to honor both parents who died.
Some heart-shaped garden stones come with hangers so they can be hung on a wall or garden post. Consider personalizing the memorial stones with your loved one’s name, favorite quote or Scripture and dates of birth and death. Some stones are large enough to have an image etched or engraved. This is popular for families who wish to memorialize a pet that died.
When ordering heart-shaped garden stones, remember that they come in various sizes and weights. Make sure to take into consideration when ordering. Heart-shaped garden stones are a great way to dedicate a memorial garden or special tree, bush or flower planting.
