Projects Cemeteries

More and more cemeteries are now being used as outdoor spaces. They are valued as memorial parks, which provide rest and relaxation in the busy urban environment. The landscaping of cemeteries requires a very specific vision on design and planting. Matters such as use of space, soil problems, planting and technical management issues play an important role in the choice of species. Apart from this, cemeteries offer an excellent opportunity for planting unusual trees that are impossible or difficult to use in other locations. This includes traditional weeping trees, climbing trees at children's cemeteries, fruit trees or large, characteristic multi-stems.
