One will sometimes find a lack of old monuments in an old cemetery; this is caused by the German custom of reuse of a burial site. Burials are in wooden caskets, metal ones and in ground concrete vaults are forbidden. In America, one purchases a plot and it is theirs for eternity, here the plot is leased for 20-30 years depending on the cemetery and at the end of the lease the family is asked if they wish to renew for another term. If they do not renew, the monument and all decorations are removed and the space is leased to someone else for their burials.
Unlike cemeteries in the U.S. that are mostly fields of green grass and graves maintained by the groundskeeper, cemeteries in Germany are more like parks with each grave having a low wall or area that separates it from the next one. The graves are maintained by family members with plants or decorations changed at least twice a year according to the season.
