Master of Landscape Architecture
The general acceptance of the cemetery, by different societies, as the preferred burial place has made them an expression of culture, consequently numerous forms and various classifications such as monument and non-monument have developed. This practice of burying the dead has also resulted in an enormous acreage of land devoted exclusively to cemeteries. This form of land use does not diminish or remain constant in respect to size but is constantly increasing. As our society in the United States becomes more urban in character more and more of this cemetery acreage will be located in the metropolitan areas. In order for us to make the best possible and most efficient use of this land it is important that it is properly designed and developed.
