The cemetery staff totally cleans the cemetery twice a year. In this process, they will remove and discard all artificial decorations from the previous decorating period. Perennial or annual plantings will be trimmed flush to the ground during the fall cleaning period. You must remove artificial decorations that you want to save before the beginning of each cleaning period. We are unable to retrieve a decoration once the cemetery staff has removed it.
No decorations are allowed until cleaning is complete. Once a specific area has been cleaned, even if the cleaning period has not expired, the next period's policies and regulations will prevail.
Secondary Cleaning Periods
The cemetery staff cleans the cemetery regularly during the spring, summer and fall months to remove and discard decorations not complying with decoration policies. There are several periods of Special Decoration Consideration (refer to this section for more details (policies)) when cleanings are suspended.
