Markers

Beveled Markers

Beveled Markers are generally 6-inches tall in the back, tapering to 4-1/2-inches in the front, or 8-inches tall in the back, tapering to 6-1/2-inches tall in front. Beveled Markers are always set on a concrete foundation; however a matching granite base may be used in place of the concrete foundation.

 

 

Flat Markers

Flat Markers, sometimes referred to as footstones, are generally 4-inches thick. You can set a flat marker by:

  • Flush without collar: The marker would be set flush in the ground, with no cement collar.
  • Flush with collar: The marker would be placed in a cement collar, usually about 5" around the marker, and then set flush in the ground.
  • Above Ground: The marker would be set on a pre-cast cement foundation.
