Cemetery Planning and Design

Cemeteries should be beautiful spaces that act to console the bereaved and foster contemplation.

A cemetery is an expression of its community—it is a repository of the history of a place and it serves the profound needs of the present. We honor this awareness by developing design concepts that express the unique character of each cemetery and its locale.

Collaboration is an important part of this process. We work with cemetery staff and trustees to understand the unique circumstances – physical, institutional and financial—that need to be considered in determining the best development approach including:

  • Master planning
  • Infill development
  • Interment gardens
  • Garden mausoleums
  • New burial development

This results in both a high quality of service as well as a comprehensive and practical design solution. We bring a commitment to design excellence and to establishing sustainable and environmentally responsible landscapes.
