The predominant turf at Arlington is tall fescue, a grass that generally does well in the Cincinnati climate and soil.  As a bronze memorial park, we prefer to maintain the turf in the gardens in a manner that is consistent with a “lawn” appearance.  The recommended height for tall fescue is 3″ for best and healthiest results.  Since our mowing height is perhaps higher, for instance, than private lawns, we essentially mow continuously.  Our goal is to mow each garden at least one time per week and during the spring and early summer months, we frequently mow each garden twice per week.  This is, of course, part of your perpetual care at work.

Visitation and decorating grave sites is very important to many Arlington families and we therefore attempt to provide as much up-to-date information on this page as we can. Decoration management is a task incorporated within the mowing function as, prior to mowing each garden, our Grounds Team removes prohibited artificial decorations as well as those live cut decorations that have declined and “browned-out.”
