Cemetery Landscaping

There is much to consider when designing and maintaining the landscape of a cemetery. Attention to detail is paramount. Typically the best designs deliver a flowing landscape. Consideration of plant and tree types is important. For example tree size and trees that do not bear fruit or nuts are all factors to consider. Then there is the careful examination of the soil and climate of the region to factor in.

Often man made ponds are added to the cemetery landscape to add an element of peace and serenity.  Some options of trees are the birch tree, the weeping willow and the sugar maple. These varieties of trees offer a peaceful look and they attract local bird species and other wildlife.

The professional and certified landscape technicians work closely with the infrastructure development team for a cemetery. There are numerous things to consider as the cemetery is being built such as proper installation of drainage piping, water supply piping, sewer piping and storm drainage. This calls for a skilled landscape design crew like Pugh’s Earthworks so that the plants, trees and walk ways are aligned with the overall cemetery design.

When you consider the permanence of a cemetery as a community addition, the careful planning and coordination by the architects and landscape technicians is critical. Often city planners take input from the community members so that final product is one that leaves the community with a proud addition to its overall appearance. The selection process of a building company and landscape company is normally done through a bidding and presentation process.
