Throughout history, memorial gardens have been one of the most popular ways to honor the memory of the deceased. Whether for Royalty, the fallen soldier, or a loving mother, a memorial garden provides an ideal area for solace and reflection for its visitors. When constructing such a garden an important decision will be what will be the centerpiece of this living tribute? While a fountain, statute, or wind chime may be fine options, a memorial garden bench, with its dignity and durable nature, remains the ideal focal point for almost any outdoor setting.
Regrettably, some people may dismiss purchasing a memorial bench because of concerns over costs, shipping time, and breakage. Fortunately, with the evolution of web stores specializing in sympathy gifts, the purchase of a decorative garden memorial bench is easier than ever.
Many people may shy away from purchasing a memorial garden bench believing that such a large item would be prohibitively expensive. Fortunately, this belief that a garden bench would be a budget buster could not be further from the truth. A simple internet search will produce a number of internet sympathy stores which carry a wide variety of quality memorial benches. The prices for these benches can range from an average of one hundred eighty dollars to two hundred fifty dollars and up. In many cases, most web stores will ship garden benches anywhere in the continental United States at little or no additional cost.
Concerns about the time it may take to ship a bench to its ultimate destination may dissuade some people from placing an order. The fact is that in most cases, once a memorial bench is ordered from a reputable internet store, it will be shipped within two business days. (If a bench is going to be personalized, the processing may take a week or two longer.) If a delivery seems to be taking longer than expected, a simple phone call or e-mail to the seller will allow the buyer to check the progress of the bench’s journey.
As to worries about breakage during shipping, most reputable internet sympathy stores have a “Satisfaction Guaranteed” policy that promise to replace benches free of charge and with no additional delivery charges on that rare occasion that breakage occurs.
When the factors of cost, durability, and ease of shopping are all considered, a memorial bench remains the best choice as the ideal centerpiece for any garden planned for a lost loved one.
