Evergreen cemetery is more like never-green in many sections. so this latino family took matters in to their own hands, lovingly decorating and laying green grass sod on this grave.
there is some level of maintaince by staff these days. in certain areas of the cemetery where the ground is uneven and eroded the grounds keepers are currently laying extra layers of soil. though they really need to install proper irrigation.
this is the resting place of many prominent and wealthy los angeles families, the tombs of families of society. it is my hope and aim that some of them should finially take some initiative in preserving this lovely cemetery which holds their family graves as well.
