Grave Care and Maintenance

Cemetery is the place we all have a connection to in one way or another and thus it is the place we have to take care of. Our family members and relatives rest there, so the graveyards have long been a place of respect and calm, a place which we look after from generation to generation.

However, today’s extremely fast pace of modern life does not leave the necessary time to spare, which is so necessary for the proper care and maintenance of the graveyards. Maintaining the graveyards clean and tidy also became a major challenge for those family members who live in another city or even another country. In this case, even if they wanted to, loved ones cannot visit the cemetery frequently enough to take proper care of it. A very convenient solution is to book a graveyard maintenance service. Professionals will make sure the graveyards are constantly carefully maintained and tidy.

Grave care and maintenance services

Monument washing

No matter how durable and resistant it is, the monument, like any object outdoors, get dusty, fray by outdoor weather conditions, and can also shed moss. When maintaining the graveyards, you shouldn’t forget the monument, which is a big part of the image of a tidy grave. Graveyard workers will make sure the monument remains as new throughout the year.

Flower planting and maintenance

For flowers to bloom, it is necessary to take care of their well-being and know such things as when it is best to plant them, what plants to choose so that they are not too demanding and suitable for growing on graveyards. It is also important to water the planted flowers regularly and get rid of the weeds that tend to grow next to them. After the blooming season, you should also take care of the graveyard - if the flowers are perennial, it may be enough to just prune them and leave them for the next season. However, if the flowers serve for one season, then in order to maintain a tidy graveyard, the withered flowers should be uprooted, and new ones planted in their place. Having blooming flowers on the graveyard is a time-consuming and dedication requiring process. For those who do not have the time needed to frequently take care after it, graveyard maintenance specialists will be happy to help.

Maintenance of ornamental trees and plants

If one or more ornamental trees grow on or near the graveyard, they will also need constant care. Though these ornamental plants won’t require such often care as flowers, however, for trees or shrubs to look tidy you should prune them at least a couple of times a year. In the autumn season these plants also start to pollute - leaves or branches will fall on the grave, so it’s necessary to clean the grave more often in autumn season.

If a tree or shrub growing near or on the grave has become too tall or has expanded too much, professionals will take care of it and thoroughly remove the plant. Specialists will also help you tidy up the space after and replant it according to your choice.

Graveyard landscaping

If the graveyard is completely new or, on the contrary, very old, and all the vegetation on it is already obsolete, graveyard workers will offer a new design for the grave. First of all, old plants will be uprooted, then the soil will be changed to new and fertile. After the preparation, you will discuss and choose the new grave design together with the specialist. The solution will depend on whether you want more greenery, or blooming flowers, or maybe decorative shrubs or just a neat lawn. It is also important to estimate the environment around the graveyard - will the plants have to be in direct sunlight or will they be covered by the shadow of tall trees. Maybe the graveyard will be exposed to the sun throughout the whole summer season? You should choose plants having these circumstances in mind. If you decide to cover the graveyard with a maintenance-free surface, the grave specialist can suggest covering it with granite plates, tiles or decorative rubble.

One-time / occasional grave care

You can order a on-time graveyard maintenance service if you have no possibility to come and do it yourself. One-time graveyard maintenance is often chosen for a specific occasion - it can be the Day of All Saints, Father's, Mother's Day, the deceased's birthday, or anniversary. Graveyard workers will make sure that the graveyard is tidy and maintained on an important day, so when you arrive you will not have to worry about the care of the grave, instead you can use that time to honor your loved ones with your thoughts.

By ordering the occasional one-time maintenance service of the graveyard, you will be able to choose exactly those services that are relevant to the graveyard. Weather it only needs weeding and collecting the leaves, or it requires to regenerate the vegetation, plant new flowers or put a vase of freshly cut flowers bouquet – a specialist will do anything you need. Moreover, during the one-time service, a specialist can prune the trees, fertilize existing vegetation, and clean the monument if needed.
