This project stems from my own experience with grief after losing my grandpa while being far away from home during COVID. Seeing my grandma still nurturing the garden that they grew even when grandpa has passed away, I realize the memories, legacy, and life that grows in the soil of our garden. This project is my way of exploring the restorative and preserving nature of gardening and its power in processing grief through nurturing love. 

Rooted is a compassionate grief gardening service that understands the grounding nature of gardening and the healing power of plants and flowers during times of grief. The service provides carefully curated seed-starting kits are designed to create a nurturing space for reflection, remembrance, and healing. The kit comes with all the necessary tools and ongoing support to help users start a flourishing grief garden rooted in love and memories.


Inspired by the organic beauty of nature, Rooted’s branding is quiet, poetic, and sophisticated. Every detail, from the elegant typography to the organic plant silhouettes, embody the brand’s core value of fostering contemplative and healing experiences for individuals navigating grief. Rooted’s branding invites users into a space of quiet reflection and acceptance, mirroring the tranquility found in nature.
