Lakewood maintains one of the largest cemetery greenhouse operations in the country. The greenhouse staff grows and plants more than 95,000 flowers each season.
The design of the formal flower beds strongly reflect Lakewood’s commitment to history but also innovation. Most beds feature the same flowers year after year. In spring, red tulips are visible from either side of the front gate at the 36th Street entrance. In summer, red canna lilies decorate the entrance.
The greenhouse offers fresh floral bouquets, potted plants, Easter lilies, poinsettias, and evergreen wreaths according to the season. We can place flowers for you on an ongoing basis or just once. Learn more about our greenhouse services.
Our grounds crew is also supported by a large maintenance building that houses the mowers, trucks and construction vehicles needed to conduct burials and keep the grounds looking beautiful through each season.
