Hedges, fencing, walls, curbing, railings, enclosures or similar structures shall not be erected around gravesites following adoption of this ordinance. Existing structures or enclosures may be maintained but not expanded. No white marble, granite chips, or other rock materials will be allowed on gravesites. Any now existing may be maintained but not expanded. The future placing of ornaments, chairs, settees, fences, edging materials, shepherd’s hooks, trellises, or other similar articles upon plots will not be permitted.

If needed, maintenance persons shall remove any of these articles to facilitate mowing.
