Why can't I have flowers on my loved one's grave after October 15th?

Gound level flowers can be covered by snow and not seen by snow removal personnel. This may result in damaged equipment or cause injury from airborne flowers. 

Exceptions are granted for cultural holiday decorations. This includes birthdays, date of death, and anniversaries, provided they are clearly marked on the monument. Ground-level, holiday grave decorations shall be allowed three (3) days before and three (3) days after the holiday. 

Christmas decorations are allowed from the day after Thanksgiving through the first week of the New Year.
