In 2011-2012 LEES+Associates completed a feasibility study followed by design development and construction administration assistance on the Memorial Garden of Gethsemane. Working closely with the client, a local architect and horticulturist and through several site visits, the team efficiently moved the design from an initial vision through construction in less than a year.
Additional services provided include a business case analysis, equipment specification and procurement, the development of marketing graphics and ongoing strategic advice.
The Memorial Garden provides a variety of interment options in a secure and attractive environment (including double depth burial lots, family estates, a children and infant’s garden and cremation lots).
Through a combination of hardscape, planting, covered spaces and water features, the site will provide a setting befitting commemoration. Development will occur in two phases.
In the interim, the second phase of the site will be maintained as a turf farm.
