A cemetery groundskeeper focuses on the upkeep and maintenance of the cemetery. Your duties include cutting the lawn, pruning trees, keeping vegetation trim and even, and planting grass over new grave sites. As a caretaker, you may have additional responsibilities at a burial ground such as repairing gravestones and preparing a gravesite for a funeral. If you work in a four-season location, you remove snow from paths and roads in the winter. A groundskeeper performs the caretaking tasks by themselves or as part of a team. In some cemeteries, you oversee contractors who perform lawn care and maintenance duties.
