All vases placed on any grave, crypt or niche must be purchased from Ivy Lawn. Fresh cut flowers only are allowed on the graves. Artificial flowers are allowed in crypt and niche vases. These flowers will be removed when they become unsightly. The placing of decorative articles on the graves, other than fresh cut flowers as stated above, is not permitted because of maintenance restrictions. No decorative articles are allowed on the ground and floor, in front of the crypts or niches because of safety concerns for all visitors. Ivy Lawn may remove any prohibited decorations.
During the Christmas holidays, signs will be posted showing the dates that decorations may be placed on the graves and when they will be removed. For the Easter, Memorial Day, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Halloween and Thanksgiving holidays, decorations may be placed on the graves two days prior to the holiday and will be removed at the end of the week as usual. Any items left will be picked up and disposed of by Ivy Lawn. Ivy Lawn shall not be responsible for damage or loss of plants, decorations or containers.
