SILK artificial arrangements may be used in the Memorial Vases only. Silk flower arrangements are available for
purchase through our office. Please
remove any arrangements you want to save by October 15th.
FALL: October 15th to November 1st we will be clearing the
cemetery for winter and ask that you remove any decorations you want to
keep. We use these two weeks to turn
vases down to prevent winter breakage and complete our final mowing and leaf
WINTER: from November 1st to early March. No restrictions except no glass
containers. All artificial decorations
are permitted. ALL VASES must be left
down to prevent freezing and damage.
Christmas wreathes are available through our office and include

Grandview Memorial Gardens is not responsible for any
decorations lost or destroyed by weather, time or theft. The digging of holes for any purpose is
strictly prohibited. We reserve the right
to remove cut flowers & other decorations from the lot at a time when we
feel the decoration has served its intended purpose & becomes unsightly
rather than decorative. Special
occasions like Birthdays, etc. permit flexibility to the rules.
With your help we can keep Grandview Memorial Gardens a
place of ever-increasing beauty for you to enjoy and in keeping the memory of
your loved ones with whom we are entrusted.
