In the book, Silent Cities, which is out of print but I was able to obtain from my library system, I discovered this in the chapter "Neglected Cemeteries". p. 100
"[when] the cemetery runs out of land for burials its revenue diminishes drastically. At the same time expenses needed for lawn care and new plantings as well as for trained personnel to discourage thieves and vandals and to restore toppled markers. If the cemetery doesn't have a perpetual care fund, its income dries up and it cannot maintain its grounds."
