Lasting Beauty Memorial FrameHow do you prevent weeds from growing around gravestones? Here’s a twist on an idea born from recycled tire mulch mats around trees that can help cemeteries better manage their maintenance.

Jeff Nepa with NEPA Innovations presented the Lasting Beauty Memorial Frame at the 2014 ICCFA expo. These frames are manufactured from recycled rubber. Placed around grave markers and headstones, they prevent unsightly weeds, provide for easy maintenance, and help prevent damage to markers from lawn trimmers and mowers.

The Lasting Beauty Memorial Frames come in three sizes, easily cut to fit most memorial markers, and four colors: redwood, earthtone, classic black and forest green. They have a 15-year color guarantee and are made in the U.S.A.
