The Gardens

The Gardens lay the canvas for the whole project.

An assortment of water, bridges, trees, plants, planters and benches will add a gentle touch throughout the site.   Nature’s finger will beautify and soften against a backdrop of granite, while concealing and revealing statues, stained glass, and plaques as you meander through the site.

Each of these garden items can be sponsored and dedicated to your family / ancestor.

Prices will be added once all factors of design, creation, shipping, and installment have been considered. You can temporarily reserve an item while you wait for us to work things out. No obligation, but it prevents something you love from being taken.

Living Water.
Stream

By Landscaper

£ TBC

An upturned water jug next to the ‘Living Waters’ statue – located at the entrance to the site – has water flowing from it which feeds a stream running through the whole site.

The Living Water was the motivation for the Reformers, Martyrs, and Converts we meet along the way.

  • The stream disappears at the far end of the Cloud of Witnesses monument on the upper terrace. Symbolic of the Apostasy.
  • The water reappears on the lower terrace at the First Vision statue symbolising the restoration.
  • It continues along to the “Did you not understand” statue depicting Heber C. Kimball demonstrating how the 1837 missionaries reaped the harvest planted by many forerunners.
