Sunset Memorial Park Floral Policy
RULES FOR FLOWERS & DECORATIONS
Sunset Memorial Park Association is not responsible for any items, decorations, flowers or potted plants left on or at the gravesite, mausoleum crypt or niche within the Park.
Sunset is a memorial park, with flush memorials that enhance the beauty of the park and allow for easy maintenance during mowing season.
GRAVE DECORATIONS are limited ONLY fresh cut flowers during the mowing season, from March 1st to November 1st. Flowers will be removed when they become wilted or unsightly. Cut flowers should be placed in the bronze vase that is in the memorial or a temporary "pick" vase may be used.
From November 1st to March 1st wreaths or other appropriate decorations will be allowed on graves. All artificial decorations should have a weatherproof tag indicating the name, section, lot and grave number. All decorations should be securely anchored in the ground. Grave blankets are not permitted.
Stones, pebbles, bricks, mulch or shells are not permitted on graves. No chains, fencing or other barriers around the grave are permitted.
FUNERAL FLOWERS will be removed from the gravesite, within 5 days of the burial and will be disposed of by the Association.
MAUSOLEUM FLOWERS are limited to fresh cut or potted plants. The Association is not responsible for the watering of the plants or for the storage of the vases used in the Mausoleum. Artificial flowers or decorations are not permitted.

Items attached to the fronts will be removed and the cost of repair may be assessed to the owner or heir of the place of interment, entombment or inurnment.
No wreaths, pictures or decorations on an easel are permitted in the mausoleum. All permitted decorations should be placed on the tables provided.
