How can I ensure that my flowers and/or memorialization remain in place?
On the Grounds:
–Only approved cemetery vases which are set in the ground and turned over, out of the way when not in use may be used. The office has them available and can install them permanently for you. Fresh and artificial flowers will be left onsite unless they are starting to wilt; becoming unsightly; faded; or if they are impeding on neighboring lots and graves.
— We allow an 8-inch planting bed along the base of the monument; flowers must be “planted in” and not simply places onto the planting bed area. You must keep the flower bed in good condition – watered and free of weeds. If your flower bed becomes unsightly (weeds etc.) the cemetery personnel are instructed to remove the bed immediately. If you want to place mulch, it must be soft wood chips or small bark (no stone or rock of any kind) and may not be placed around individual markers.
–No fencing of any kind (wood, plastic, concrete, metal, etc.) is to be placed around the monument or marker. No wood, metal or plastic objects (crosses, statutes, etc.) nor concrete, iron, or plastic vases, etc. are permitted. Nothing may be attached with wires or zip ties to your marker or monument. They are unsightly and cause maintenance problems. They will be removed as we mow through the section.
–Solar lights, inflatable toys, balloons, shepherd hooks, garden tablets, pictures, plastic objects, windmills, animals, metal stands, boxes, homemade objects of any kind, decorative pots and temporary vases, glass containers, and candles of any kind are not permitted and will be removed as we mow through the section. They are offensive to others whose lots may be located in the same area. In consideration of others, we ask that you please limit your decorations to one per gravesite.
–Flowers and/or decorations must be places in cemetery installed crypt or niche vases only and may not impede on neighboring crypts or niches. Fresh and artificial flowers will be removed by cemetery personnel if they are starting to wilt, becoming unsightly or faded.
–Only cemetery approved emblems purchased from the cemetery may be affixed to crypt or niche fronts by cemetery personnel. Any non-regulation emblem or picture attached to a crypt or niche front may cause permanent damage to the front and will be removed by cemetery personnel.
–Anything placed on the floor or ground neat indoor or outdoor crypts or niches will b immediately removed by cemetery personnel. These items cause a tripping hazard (canes, walkers, etc.) are unsightly, cause maintenance problems, and are offensive to others whose crypt or niche may be located in the same area.
–If you own a monument space only cemetery approved monuments are permitted.
