Having completed the tree work back in February, the cemetery was finally ready for some much needed site work. S.Vecchione Inc. of Oreland brought in several pieces of equipment to do the job.
Several large piles of debris needed to be cleared to prepare for the final grading
A mini excavator is useful for pulling out rotted tree stumps, compacting the back fill and moving small piles of debris.
This tracked skid steer loader has an attachment that can grip logs.
This machine was also used to re-contour the ground on the uphill side of the cemetery to keep rain water away from flowing into the stone wall and undermining the foundation.
After fine tuning the final grade, grass seed and straw mulch was spread to minimize erosion. In about a month the site will be green with new grass.
Special thanks to Tory Vecchione for bringing his equipment, experience, and professionalism to the project. A beautiful job!
