Salt Lake City Cemetery turf restoration project is coming along on schedule. Many individuals are working hard finishing installing new sod, leveling low areas, and planting new seed. This part of the restoration is almost complete. With the new seed germinating and starting to feel the cemetery grounds are looking very nice. As of the end of June the installation portion of this project should be completed. The mowing, trimming of these areas as well as the rest of the cemetery will resume and be back on our normal maintenance schedule. Please do not hesitate to ask for assistance from cemetery employee to get to a loved one’s grave or anything else you might need during your visit to this amazing historical site.
We have several areas that are newly seeded and are receiving extra water to allow the seed to germinate. As these area starts growing the grass will appear longer than usual. Cemetery staff will be performing minimal maintenance in these areas allowing the new seed to grow and get established without damage being caused by our maintenance equipment. Once these areas are established we will start our regular maintenance.
The Cemetery staff wants to thank you for your understanding. For further information you may contact the Cemetery Office at 801-596-5020.
