Gravesite Garden Services

Sunstone offers personalized care and garden design for gravesites. Our care plans ensure that your loved one’s gravesite continues to look its best throughout the year.


Cemeteries are generally large and expansive pieces of land, making it hard for the maintenance staff to properly and thoroughly tend to each and every individual gravesite. Their priority is to maintain the grounds, roads, and cemetery buildings as a whole first. It is not practical for a cemetery’s landscaping crew to provide the level of attention that many families desire for their loved one’s final resting place.

Sunstone will tend your family member’s gravesite (or multi-grave family plot) throughout the year, giving the site the detailed attention and consistent care, it deserves.

Our service ensures that no matter when you or your family members visit, the gravesite will be tidy and well-groomed. On a monthly basis, and as is seasonally appropriate, we can complete the following tasks:

  • Remove windblown debris and litter, including raking leaves and picking up sticks.

  • Pull weeds from around the marker and within the grave area.

  • Where cemeteries allow; plant flowers, add borders, and design elements within the grave area.

  • Deadhead flowers, trim plants, and mulch any planted areas.

  • Hand-trim grass around the marker.

  • Add grass seed to any bare patches in the turf.

  • Water the entire site.

  • Lightly clean the gravestone, removing any dried grass thrown by mowing equipment.

  • Remove any collected material (weeds, twigs, leaves, spent flowers, etc.) from the site.

  • Email a photo to all designated family members.

Garden design, installation, and maintenance plans are individually priced. We will make a complimentary visit to the site and develop a proposal for your consideration.


Some clients prefer a single annual clean-up, or occasional assistance with watering and caretaking. We can fulfill those requests as well. Whatever your needs are, we can design a care plan just for you. We offer one time, occasional, and annual plans. Contact us to discuss your specific needs.
