Losing a loved one is one of the most difficult things to go through in life. However, many find solace in being able to visit them at their final resting place. While they won’t be able to respond or hug their visitor, it is nice to know that they are at peace and that there is location to go to when wanting to reminisce about the times that they shared together. For centuries, this was usually a burial plot or mausoleum, however in the last couple of decades, cremations have been on the rise. This has caused many cemeteries to consider investing in columbariums. In this blog post, we will discuss the benefits that columbariums provide.

They will always be a part of your heart, and having a final resting place to visit and embrace these memories is an important part of the grieving process.

Although granite has been utilized by man for thousands of years, including part of the Great Pyramid of Giza, it wasn’t until the late 19th century that it’s beauty and durability really began to be put to use.

The rock was just too dense! Following the innovation of stonemasonry tools, all of this changed. Granite became the choice stone for headstones and memorials, and over the years, multiple other industries began to the many ways that granite could be used.

And although the stone is over a billion years old, it has a very modern appeal to it when utilized creatively. As a granite company in Ontario originating in 1929, HGH has seen granite used in countless ways.
It all began with our ancestor, Henry George Hardwick, producing memorials from a small building on Ottawa street. And over the past 90 years, we have seen constant innovation in the ways that the stone is used. While we still provide custom stonework to memorial retailers, we’ve also branched out to a multitude of clientele that use granite in a variety of ways. Municipalities, landscapers, and even the art community have begun to see just how special granite is, and the beauty that it emanates. Yet, one type of client has just recently begun using granite more than any other stone. Architects.
In this post, we’ll be discussing why granite has become the architect’s preferred stone when creating beautiful architectural features, and how the billion-year-old stone is finally getting to show its creative side.
