Grave Maintenance (Advice)

Does anyone Maintain graves? I recently took one on as part of my regular round , I'm charging the customer £15 for a monthly visit.. Does this sound right ?

Im looking at expanding this side of my maintenance business , as I'm still working full time , (and I'm looking st dropping down to 4 days a week next year) as it would fit around my job and other commitments. Besides weeding and cleaning the headstone , what other services could I offer ? 

 

All advice welcome

  • I'm sure some people will say that's far to cheap but if you're in the vicinity, I guess it will only take 10 minutes or so...... I'd be happy with £15  Do a good job and you might end up with other graves to do whilst you're there.... good be quite a good earner then.

    • Thanks , I'm thinking if I can get say 10 a week , that I can do on a Saturday, Then it will be a good earner

    The church yards I look after I do twice monthly but some of the graves I do for the families once a month and I cut these shorter than the rest of grass and twice yearly I spray the headstones with sapphire and I charge £17.50. It's a good earner as I'm there anyway getting paid to cut the grave yard.

    • What's Sapphire? Is it a form of treatment for headstones ?

        It's a biocide that treats moss and lichen that build up on the headstones but can be used on almost any hard surface.
