Cremation Memorial Garden

Not sure how to honour your loved ones after cremation?  Have you considered a private tree burial at Mornington Green? Now you can create an environmentally friendly legacy for your family.

Honour your loved ones with a garden burial post cremation

The balance between owning your own burial plot and cremation can be a difficult decision to make. In an effort to help families through this difficult decision, we can offer an alternative option – a private tree burial. This is the perfect solution for families who want something customised specifically to their taste.

How does a garden burial work?

Put simply, your ashes are scientifically treated to create living molecules making them environmentally friendly and then placed beneath a private tree in the beautiful botanic gardens, thus creating a living legacy in your honour.

The Legacy Gardens offers a range of splendiferous trees to bury your ashes beneath, such as oaks, jacarandas, Japanese maples, and others. Only highly developed trees with heights ranging from 1 to 2 meters are planted in order to provide a lush immersive garden experience in which your family and friends can visit and feel connected to you at any time.

A private tree burial is better for your loved ones and the environment

Mornington Green will not only provide you with a beautiful, tranquil and natural environment for your ceremony, but in addition to this, Mornington Green will plant 400 native trees off site in your name. This means that in your time of mourning you can also leave a positive impact on the environment by doubling the amount of clean air breathed in your lifetime. With our Legacy Garden tradition you can ensure that what would have been left behind is not just memories, but an act of care for generations to come.

Your tree is protected by a conservation agreement so the land that it’s on cannot be developed or logged. Each tree also gets its own custom plaque to be reserved just for you in perpetuity.

Certified horticulturalists provide ongoing care for the tree and the gardens ensuring your loved one’s final resting place will always be kept in pristine condition.
