Arlington National Cemetery annually renovates more than 30 acres of turf. This process involves removing the old turf and weeds, tilling the soil, grading the grave sites and planting new grass from seed. Each year, the Horticulture Division assigns sections for renovation as needed. The long-term result will be a much healthier, thicker turf and ground that is much more level.
