Prayer Gardens of St. Dominic’s Church Brookfield, WI

raSmith designed a series of eight themed gardens for a large, open green space surrounded by a large existing tree buffer on the campus of St. Dominic’s Catholic Church in Brookfield. Each garden contains religious statuary on a stone base surrounded by plantings that relate to each garden theme.

A large terrace was designed for gatherings and events, and the layout of the walkways relate to the orientation of the front of the church and bell tower. The space is used for wedding photos, church masses, school classes and quiet reflection by the parishioners.
