Lawn Crypt Gardens
Lawn crypts offer a distinct alternative for interment and memorialization. Recognizing that lawn crypt sections usually involve higher initial development costs, it is critical to provide a finished garden that achieves the highest value product.
Through detailed coordinated design, Grever & Ward ensures that the completed garden will provide a prominent “high end” choice for ground burial. Construction plans and specifications guarantee that earthwork, crypt setting, drainage and landscaping function as a whole and produce an exclusive, attractive garden environment. Bidding documents and specifications provide a known set of conditions and expectations that will allow the best bids and finished product.
While lawn crypts have traditionally been associated with lawn-level flush memorials, we feel it is important to consider alternatives such as appropriately scaled upright memorials. In areas where traditions favor monuments, these options can add to the success of the garden.
Compensation for lawn crypt garden planning is based on a lump sum fee.
Grever & Ward prepares long-range plans with complete attention to functional roads, drainage, earthwork, water supply, landscape schemes, supporting facilities (i.e. office, maintenance center, mausoleum). All designs emphasize economical development, operation and low maintenance.
Future site development costs are projected and expressed in a cost per acre and cost per interment. This is done to provide general budgeting tools, to establish adequate development funds and to help determine realistic pricing for products.
Summaries are provided for all property land uses, and projections are made of total interment capacities for the entire planning site, as well as for individual expansions. Recommendations are made for specific interment options and locations based on each area’s physical makeup and the cemetery’s known market.
“Start to finish” comprehensive master planning conserves resources at a time when development is becoming more complex and expensive. These assurances on future quality, function, yields and costs are more important now than ever.
Compensation for master planning is normally on an acreage basis, lump sum fee quotation.
