Proper gravestone care is something we take very seriously at GraveCareBusiness.com.
Gravestones, especially older gravestones can be porous and fragile. Harsh handling of fragile gravestones can cause irreparable damage. We try our best to put forward the most up-to-date acceptable practices in gravestone care.
I was in a cemetery recently where the gravestones dated back to the early 1800’s. Many of the stones were common fieldstones marking unlabeled grave sites. Other headstones were modern granite carvings with easy to read names and dates.
One of the gravestones had very faint lettering. The backside of the grave marker was especially difficult to read.
Unfortunately, someone had dusted the marker with powdered chalk in an effort to better read the lettering. It’s very unsettling when I see a grave marker with chalk (and in some cases, shaving cream). These are old-timey practices that supposedly help people read names and dates off headstones. Although chalk makes it marginally clearer to read inscriptions on gravestones, it leaves a very unsightly look to the stone. If not washed away promptly, chalk can remain in gravestone crevices for an extended period of time.
In the Grave Care Business Course, we have dedicated one section to the proper care of gravestones. Included, is a tutorial on methods you can use to examine hard-to-read grave markers. There is no need to use chalk.
If you have ever thought about starting your own Grave Care Business, it will pay you to use correct practices in Grave and Tombstone care. For more information about our Grave Care Business Course, please read through our website. You can order the course directly and it will be shipped out to you, normally, within 1 business day.
We love cemeteries and gravestones. We want to do what we can to make sure they are properly cared for.
Please let us know if you have any question.
Autumn is a perfect time for Grave Care Services
And here we are in September. The long, hot, dusty summer is coming to an end. Ahead of us are days of slightly cooler weather and azure blue skies. Autumn is my favorite time of year and my favorite season to spend in my many local cemeteries.
Autumn brings with it the need for Grave Care Services. Grave plot maintenance, tombstone cleaning, and change-outs of grave side floral decorations are of particular interest right now. Additionally, those of you performing gravestone restoration services should complete your gravestone repair work before harsh winter weather arrives.
Have you ever thought about starting a Grave Care & Cemetery Maintenance Business? We have developed a professionally produced Grave Care Business Course. This course is designed to help you start and operate your own successful Grave Care Business.
Please read through our website to learn more. If you have questions, please let us know via our Contact Page. We love cemeteries and are always happy to answer your grave care related questions.

Grave Site Business and Cemetery Maintenance Business
Golden Hour Cemetery Photography
I studied photography in college as part of my elective credits.
My professor always begged his students to take advantage of the golden hours. The golden hours are the time periods directly after sunrise and right before sunset. During these hours, sunlight is filtered though a larger portion of the earth’s atmosphere than it is at mid-day. This filtering effect gives a very pleasing, warm feeling to photographs.
I find that this pleasing feeling is felt in real life too. There is something about being in a cemetery at day break. As the sun crests the horizon to light the world, there’s no place I’d rather be than in a peaceful cemetery beginning a day’s work. Likewise, in the evening, as the sun dips to the west, I always feel a sense of accomplishment knowing I’ve put the day’s sunlight to productive use.
I was in the cemetery this evening as the sun was ready to dip below the horizon. It made everything bright and green and I wanted to share this photograph with you.
Performing grave care is such a rewarding business. If you’d like to start your own Grave Care Business, please look over our website and consider purchasing our Grave Care Business Course. The course is designed to help you start, operate, and grow your own Grave Site Maintenance Business.
Photography is an important part of Grave Care because your clients (especially those who cannot visit the cemetery) will want to see the work you’ve performed. The Grave Care Business Course (Full Version) includes a special section on how to properly photograph gravestones and cemetery landscapes for your clients to see your work.
It’s natural for all business owners to occasionally feel like they are spinning in circles.
The excitement of starting your own business can be a dizzying experience. It can also be a bit frightening. When I began providing grave care services, there was no one else doing this type of work. I didn’t have anyone to lean on or ask for advice.
It was a challenge to blaze my own trail into a business where there was literally zero competition. This is one of the reasons I developed the Grave Care Business course. I love sharing information. Grave Care is such a rewarding business.
I am in cemeteries almost everyday. I continue to research and develop ideas to share with you to help you start and grow your own successful Grave Care Business.
So, if you feel like you’re spinning in circles and if you’re beginning to get dizzy thinking about starting your own Grave Care Business, please look over this entire website to learn how the Grave Care Business course will help you.
You can order the Grave Care Business course from the main page of our website and it will be shipped to you promptly.

2016 Springtime Grave Care
This morning’s early springtime sunrise reminded me how much I enjoy doing this work and sharing it with you.
I was up early this morning. On the road before the sun came up, I pulled over to snap this shot for you as the sun crested the horizon. Seeing the predawn glow was a pleasant reminder of the fulfilling nature of this work. The reason I was up so early is because I am working on a new cemetery project. I hopped out of bed this morning excited for the day ahead.
There was a time when I worked in an office cubicle…dreading each and every day. NOT ANY MORE.
If you are fascinated with cemeteries.

Christmas Grave Decoration Placement
Christmas headstone decorations are an important part of any business that offers grave care floral decoration placement services.
We will see a dramatic increase in the request for floral placements. Christmas is a very busy time. Family members want their loved one’s gravesites decorated for the holidays. A simple wreath, a small Christmas tree, or a poinsettia in a basket help bring a festive touch to a gravesite. Even if the family members are not planning to visit the gravesite for Christmas, they want to know that the headstone is decorated.
There are several things to consider when operating a grave care business. Proper placement of floral decorations should be done in accordance with cemetery rules of operation. We find that knowing these rules for floral placement ahead of time allows you to give proper advice to your grave care clients. If you’re going to offer floral decoration placement services this Christmas, our Grave Care Business training course will help you start your business quickly.
For more information, please visit our main webpage. When you decide to order the full course, it will be mailed to you via Priority Rush mail. There’s good money to be made in December with your grave care business.
Christmas Decorations add lots of profit to your Grave Care Business.

Spring Grave Care includes Easter and Mother’s Day.
Grave Care Maintenance and Floral Decoration Services will be in high demand this spring. Easter and Mother’s Day
are two very busy times for Grave Care Business operators.
Trees are budding, daffodils are popping up everywhere, and grass is greening up nicely. These facts mean that spring is finally here. With spring comes a tremendously busy (and profitable) time for anyone who owns their own grave care business.
Most cemeteries suffer from neglect during the winter months. Landscaping goes unmaintained, branches from trees fall, and tombstones often build a layer of grime that needs to be washed off. Add Easter and Mother’s Day to the already long list of services that need to be performed and you can, surely, see how busy grave care will be for the next several months.
Being this busy is a good problem to have. If you price your services properly, your grave care business should be able to make a great deal of money over the next few month. Additionally, customers who contact you for spring time Grave Care businesses will often agree to hire you to perform other services through the year and grave site decorating on those special days such as Anniversaries and Birthdays.
IF you have already started your own Grave Care Business, prepare for a busy time ahead, If you still thinking about starting a Grave Care Business, you will get great help from our Grave Site Business Course.
