As the days warm and spring buds begin to peek out of the earth, we start to see more visitors in the local cemeteries. Family members are starting to clean up last year’s faded silks or dry stems, check monuments over for winter damage, and plant fresh flowers around graves. They will trickle in over the next few weeks in one’s and two’s, carrying their trowels and flats of deer-resistant flowers, ready to prepare their family plots for another spring. But inevitably, a few stones will be left untended – the ones with family members too distant or too over-committed for spring preparations.
At Sheboygan Monument & Stone Works, we understand how busy life can be and how cemetery visits can slide to the bottom of your to do list. Whether or not your stone was designed in our shop, our garden staff are happy to step in and accent it with your choice of flowers and other plants. We check the cemetery’s guidelines for the types of displays permitted and personally select the plants you request. After the gardening is done, we will provide you with photos of the grave and its newly enhanced surroundings. We can even schedule a succession of plantings over the year, ranging from spring bulbs to a Fall tribute of long-lasting silk flowers.
Don’t let the challenges to your time and attention prevent a Spring floral tribute. Call Sheboygan Monument & Stone Works today to discuss your cemetery planting needs, and how we can help you memorialize your loved one in living color.
