Headstone maintenance

If you've ever seen an old cemetery, you know that nature takes its toll on the graves after a while. Headstone maintenance is the practice of cleaning graves, replacing gravel chippings, trimming weeds, and delivering fresh flowers for graves. These services are often done by groundcrew at the cemetery, but they can also be an act of care from the family of the deceased. In many cultures, grave cleaning is an important way to show respect and honor lost loved ones.
