Gravesite Rules

To help reduce the ongoing costs of maintaining the cemetery and to preserve the grounds for the future, the Board of Directors gratefully appreciates your cooperation in complying with these rules:

NO ENCLOSURES: No fences, railings, curbing, framework or other enclosures can be placed on any lot. No decorative rock, gravel or other materials are allowed on any lot.

NO MOUNDS: No grading of the lots above the general level of the ground is allowed.

NO PLANTING: No planting of shrubs, flowers or trees is allowed. 

NO ZOYSIA GRASS: No planting of zoysia grass is allowed.

SHEPHERD'S HOOKS: Shepherd's hooks have been banned from the cemetery since June 15, 2017.

PERSONAL ITEMS: From time to time, any items left on graves will be removed and discarded. After Memorial Day, items will be removed after two weeks. The Board of Directors does not take responsibility for returning any item to their rightful owners.

SAFETY: The Board of Directors has the right to remove from any lot without permission from the owner and without notice any trees, bushes or any other objects that the board believes could cause injuries or could detract from the appearance of overall cemetery grounds.

These regulations are in accordance with the original Cemetery Deed. No director or sexton can give personal permission or exceptions contrary to these stated rules without the full written permission of the entire Board of Directors.

Please note that these rules may be changed from time to time as deemed necessary by the Board of Directors without written notice to lot owners.
