Turf Renovations

ANC renovates approximately 30 acres of turf each year. Please see “Turf Renovation in Progress” signs when renovations are taking place, and information will also be included on this website. We request that you limit walking in these areas as much as possible, but do not hesitate to visit or place flowers at a gravesite.

The process involves removing the old turf and weeds, tilling the soil, re-grading the gravesites, and sowing new grass seed. This results in much healthier, thicker turf, and ground that is more level. With favorable weather, new turf begins germinating in early autumn.
