When does topping off of graves occur?

During the mowing of gravesites the observation of required top off of soil is referred to the Parks Supervisor to be taken care of. On average graves get topped up in the first ten years roughly bi-annually. During heavy rainfall periods the water table changes and will increase the amount of sites needing top up (to over one out of 5 graves).
