After visiting Rosary gardens in the surrounding area, the leaders at St. Rita Catholic Church knew it was time for a beautiful and sacred sanctuary of their own. Church leaders had many goals in mind: handicap accessibility, proper lighting for extended use and safety, private and open spaces, easy navigation through the rosary prayers, and durability. We first recognized the existing mature trees around the site were extremely valuable to the project; adding both scale and depth. We wanted to then add warmth and even more scale to the space by installing a variety of hardy plants. In the end, more than 1,200 plants were installed. When it came to the actual hardscape, we installed approximately 2,300 square feet of Ashbury Haze, Belgard Mega-Dublin pavers. Of course no sanctuary would be complete without the peaceful resonance of running water. That's why we specifically designed a three-stone basalt water feature with a winding dry creek to be installed at the center of the garden. We finished the project by installing low voltage LED accent lights and put up lights throughout the garden. The statues and markers were purchased by the church. More than five months after breaking ground, the new Rosary Garden was complete and the parishioners and guests of St. Rita Catholic Church had a new place to worship and honor the Blessed Mother of Jesus.
