Can I put rocks or gravel on a grave?

All graves, once the ground has settled, must be covered by natural grass. You may place sod and plant grass (as long as it's native and non-invasive) on your loved one's grave once the ground has settled. (We recommend approximately 6 months from the date of burial).

However, absolutely no rocks, gravel, stone, or any other material may be placed on or used to cover a grave.

Please refer to our No Clutter Clause Effective May 2022  or our Rules and Regulations Booklet for current guidelines.
