Beautiful Garden Urns For Ashes

When picking an urn to store your loved ones ashes, you might want to choose one that can be placed in your garden.  This article has been created to give you a greater understanding of which type of urns can be stored outdoors. If you wish to see our complete collection of garden urns, you can view them here.

Why do some families keep loved one's urn in their garden?

Some families keep their loved one in their garden because they can create a personal memorial for them, for example using their favourite flowers as decoration around the urn remember them. Or perhaps their family member may have liked spending time outside, why not place them in their favourite spot where they liked sitting in at the garden? They also might have been an outdoorsy person, so it could be a fitting resting place to honour them

How can our urns be stored outside?

Each urn has been beautifully handcrafted by our artisans, whom we have been working along side with for many years. Our beautiful urns not only look outstanding, they also are strong and resilient to the weather. Our artisans created these marvellous ceramic pieces to be cherished, by using mixtures of clay, powders and water to mould into these unique designs. 

To make the urn robust, look unique and become resistant to atmospheric influence, the urns are fired in a kiln at very high temperatures to form and solidify. Depending on the glaze that has been used, we can also change the colour, meaning they can be intertwined with your garden design that you may already have, or even stand out, if that's what you would like for your loved one.

An example of a stunning design which can be placed in your garden is our Angel Wings Cremation Urn. This urn has been beautifully carved into the wings of an angel.

What are the benefits of keeping an urn in your garden?

A good benefit to having an urn placed in your garden is that you can visit your loved one whenever you like, as they are close to you. You can also decorate a memorial to your personal taste, without restrictions, which they might have at a cemetery or a columbarium. 

Was the garden your loved ones favourite place to be? Placing their urn in your garden would be a nice way to commemorate them and their spirit. Pictured below is our 'The Passage Cremation Urn', which would be a perfect addition to your garden memorial as a choice of urn.
