Cemetery policies are conspicuously posted and readily visible to the public.
Floral Arrangements: Floral arrangements accompanying the casket or urn at the time of burial will be placed on the completed grave. They will be removed when they become unsightly or when it becomes necessary to facilitate cemetery operations such as mowing.
Flowers and Containers: Fresh cut flowers may be placed on the gravesite at any time. Temporary flower containers are provided for your convenience and are the property of the cemetery. Please do not remove these containers from the cemetery grounds. Under no circumstances will items be tied, wired, glued, or otherwise attached to the headstone or marker. Permanent flower containers are no longer permitted.
Artificial Flowers: Artificial flowers will be permitted on the gravesite during the period October 10 through April 15. (Easter specific artificial decorations will be removed and discarded beginning the 2nd Monday after Easter to facilitate preparations for Memorial Day). Christmas decorations, wreaths, grave blankets (no larger than three feet by five feet), etc., are permitted beginning the Friday after Thanksgiving. They will be removed beginning March 1 each year. Decorations removed from the gravesites will be discarded after 30 days from the pick up date.
Potted Plants: Potted plants are not allowed.
Unauthorized Decorations: To preserve the dignity and appearance of the cemetery, the following items are prohibited: balloons, pinwheels, wind chimes, lights, statues, stuffed animals, alcoholic products, or other similar items; offensive items or those deemed inconsistent with the cemetery setting; permanent in-ground plantings; non-government supplied floral containers (e.g., pots, planter, vases, etc.); breakable items of any kind such as vigil lights, glass vases, or decorative glass or plastic items; candles, explosives, weapons of any kind, or ammunition; any objects that could become projectiles when caught in grounds maintenance equipment such as rocks or other small durable objects. Also, permanent in-ground floral containers are not authorized for placement in new national cemeteries or in new sections of existing cemeteries.
Perpetual Care: Guidelines provide for grounds maintenance, cutting the grass and trimming around the headstones/markers, and all areas of the cemetery on a weekly basis. This includes the removal and disposal of unauthorized grave decorations and artificial arrangements (except during periods specified above). Fresh cut floral arrangements will be removed from the gravesite and disposed of by cemetery personnel when they become withered, faded, or otherwise unsightly. Any decorations or floral items that have been displaced from the gravesites, due to wind or other factors out of our control, will be removed from the graves and disposed of by cemetery personnel.
