This is a cemetery used to bury the pets of city residents. The new plants continue the life meaning of the dead pets, and realize the relay of life in a special sense.The pet's ashes are scattered into the soil, where the roots of the plant are in the mix of the urn soil, breaking down the ashes for nutrients. When the plants flourish, the ashes are completely broken down. The life of the owner's cherished pet is inherited by the vigorous growth of plants, continuing the companionship of the pet at the owner's side.
