Gravesite Maintenance Services

The Cemetery Elves use tried and proven methods and products in the performance of our services. We offer high quality products and professional service in the performance of our work. The following is a list of amenities we offer our customers.

The Cemetery Elves can build a complete custom maintenance or care package to fit all your needs. We offer discounts on multiple services and maintenance plans. The Cemtery Elves supply photos of all our services and placements when complete. Every veteran gravesite serviced will receive a FREE American flag placed at the grave if one is not present.

Please make sure you review the cemetery rules that apply to your loved one’s gravesite as some are very restrictive.

The Cemetery Elves do not perform any type of stone, marker or monument restoration or resetting services.

Lawncare Maintenance Services: The Cemetery Elves supplies two service levels of gravesite lawncare that include grass cutting, trimming around the stone or marker, edging the stone or marker, gently washing of the stone or marker, weeding around the stone or marker, raking of debris and watering existing plants. We also offer add-on services for spot patching of topsoil and grass, application of weed and feed products, mulching and bed borders.

The Cemetery Elves can customize a care plan for almost any budget. Our goal is to supply an aesthetic and groomed look to the gravesite. Perpetual cemeteries supply grass cutting services but tend to leave the “well groomed” look to the plot owner. We supply this service with the dignity and reverence your loved one deserves.

Services include gentle washing, gentle cleaning, cleaning and buffing and deep cleaning, depending on the stone type and condition.

The Cemetery Elves uses the “Do No Harm” standards recommended by the Professional Cemetery Preservationists and Stone Conservators, best practices as set forth by the National Park Service’s National Center for Preservation Technology and Training (NCPTT) funded by the Department of Veterans Affairs National Cemetery Administration and operational standards set forth by The National Cemetery Administration as well as professional recommendations from the Cemetery Conservators United Standards (CCUS) for maintaining gravesite stones, markers and monuments. These are the groups entrusted with the care and techniques for our nation’s 131 national cemeteries and more than three million gravesites. All the products and equipment we use are to offer cleaning without damaging the condition. Our goal is to clean the stone, marker or monument and not try to make it new. Cleaning the stone, marker or monument helps keep its “new” look and regular maintenance prolongs the life of the stone, marker, and monument. Our products will continue to work long after we are finished cleaning your headstone. Although you will be amazed at the results from the cleaning process, the stone will continue to improve over several weeks. Our solutions will continue to prevent biological growth for months. With regular cleaning you can protect your investment from the elements and deterioration.
