Use as many different
styles of tombstones as you can afford to buy and/or make. Try to
buy better quality tombstones if you can, they look much more
realistic than less expensive ones and will last longer since they

Use dirt to make
burial mounds where your tombstones will be. If you have a supply of
dirt, you can build up six to eight inch high mounds in front of
each tombstone. If you don't happen to have any extra dirt yourself,

company for a small change. Just remember, you'll need to do
something with all that extra dirt after Halloween. Scatter leaves,
twigs and branches around the area to give it an untended look. For
