Grave Decorations

Restrictions

Plants and flowers may be displayed, but are not allowed in glass jars, bottles, or cans. Containers or stands may be anchored, but must not be tripping or mowing hazards. Flower receptacles for flush markers must be in-ground or inverted.

Flowers

Artificial flowers are permitted, but must be in suitable containers. Cut flowers and containers may be removed by cemetery personnel two weeks after Memorial Day. Planting trees, shrubs, and flowers is the responsibility of cemetery personnel. Private plantings on graves are not permitted.

Temporary Grave Decorations

Temporary decorations such as: 

  • Figurines
  • Flags
  • Flower arrangements
  • Hanging iron planters
  • Potted plants
  • Vases
  • Wreaths

Such items should be placed as near the headstone as possible. Cemetery personnel will remove decorations from graves if or when they become unsightly. 

Responsibility of Decorations

Unless prior arrangements are made, staff will not be responsible for the return of any temporary decorations.
