A place of interment provides a place of remembrance and serenity for family and friends — a place to honor those we love. Bellefontaine offers several options for honoring your loved one through lot maintenance and beautification.

FlowersPerennial Planting Program

Our Perennial Planting Program provides the opportunity to decorate your lot and pay tribute to your loved one with plants that will bloom year after year. While Bellefontaine of course provides excellent lawn care, you may also choose alternatives such as ivy or other groundcovers. For details on the program, please download our Perennial Planting Program card, or contact Gracie or Rick at the cemetery office 314-381-0750.

Floral Arrangements

If you’d like to honor your loved one with an individual arrangement hand-delivered to the gravesite by our cemetery staff, you may also choose to order fresh flowers or plants directly through our partnership with Walter Knoll Florist. We kindly and respectfully request that all floral arrangements are fresh, not artificial, as wire and other materials used in artificial flowers can damage our mowers and pollute the grounds. All grave decorations will be removed the first week of each month, with the exception of evergreen wreathes and swags, which are removed by February 1. 

Christmas Wreathes and Swags

It has become an annual Bellefontaine tradition for families to adorn loved ones’ graves with fresh evergreen wreathes and swags for the holidays. Please contact the cemetery office at 314-381-0750 by November 1 to secure your order for an evergreen swag ($30) or 24″ wreath ($45) adorned with holly berries and red bow. Each decoration comes mounted on a stand, and will be placed at the gravesite on your behalf by cemetery staff.

Monument Cleaning

The monuments, statuary, and other architectural features of a gravesite or lot can require significant care over the years to remove lichens or pollution residues. Bellefontaine can wash and reset monuments, as well as provide more intensive repair work if needed. Each arrangement is made on a case-by-case basis. Contact us at 314-381-0750 for further information.
