Living Flame Plantings
"Living Flame" drought-tolerant plantings complement the memorial design and spirit of firefighting.

"Beginning with a paper napkin sketch and loose design concept, we developed and in-stalled an open-to-public 24-7-365, beautiful open space that allows for reflection, pres-ence and honor, remembering. Funded with private donations, this is the Fallen Firefighter Memorial, at County Fire Headquarters. Not only does it remember those before us, it provides a thoughtful space to be in the present and carry forth into the future. Low maintenance, low water, attractive year round, built with local materials, and BUILT TO LAST. Seating bench, palm trees forming an “Honor Guard”, flag-stone “Circle of Honor”, plantings formed into a “Living Flame”, statue and Memorial plaque placed for open visitation, hidden conduits for PA systems during public events and year round color to brighten our lives just a little bit."
