Designing Monuments & Memorials Since 1963

Types of Memorials and Monuments

Grass Flat Marker
Grass flat markers are typically flush with the ground and cast in a concrete foundation. Depending on cemetery requirements, they can also be set these slightly raised and at a bevel.
Bevel Marker/Pillow Top
Bevel or “Pillow Top” markers stand 6? or 8? tall in the back, tapering down to 4? or 6? in the front. The sloped face helps keep the lettering and design free of settled dirt and water.
Slant Memorial
Slants are upright memorials that offer design and lettering surfaces on both the front and the back of the stone. The height of the slant makes them more visible from a distance than the Grass or Bevel markers.
Monuments are upright memorials typically installed on a granite base, giving them stability, height and visibility. The granite base offers protection from potential mower damage over time. A special setting compound is used to create an air-tight seal between the monument and the base.
