As it is necessary to gain access with mowers, some restriction on planting is necessary on Lawn Sections. On full-size graves a combined area of 4ft. x 2ft. running along the line of headstones must accommodate the memorial, flower containers and any planting. However, it is often possible to plant a small area to the sides of the headstone.
On miniature graves provided for cremated remains, there is usually insufficient space for planting after a memorial has been erected, but a vase may be incorporated in, or placed on, the memorial base.
Flower containers of glass or pottery are unsuitable as they quickly break and become dangerous.
