Managing gardens and plants in cemeteries is a complex task often involving many different species and locations throughout the grounds. Keeping track of information about these plants, their location and maintenance schedule requires a huge effort. Imagine having a Gardener's Register to assist cemetery horticulturists and your gardening team maintain your gardens.
Such a register would allow horticulturists the ability to record growth and flowering habits of the different species of plants, their performance results and capture photographs for future reference, therefore creating a detailed record of each specific plant in the grounds and their location. With significant trees, a register would allow the gardening team to capture growth heights and span information and record their annual safety checks and trimming programs.
Roses and shrubs play an important role not only in beautifying cemetery grounds but also in providing families with memorialisation options. Maintaining a Gardener's Register allows your cemetery to associate plants back to specific memorial locations in the grounds. This means your Sales Team can see a set location in the gardens, it may be a rose bed or even a specific rose for future memorialisation. A Gardener's Register would detail the type of rose with photos in full summer flower which the Sales Team can use to help families visualise their tribute even in the depths of winter.
You'd also be able to manage your garden activity planning like pruning and replacement programs by giving the Gardening Team the ability to flag plants requiring maintenance and produce job lists for the team. Keeping all this information in a single register means your outdoors team can also create reports on popular plants and locations within the grounds, and see how well each plant is coping with their position and how much you are spending on maintenance.
A Gardener's Register can provide vital information and assist cemetery operations by tracking information on plant species, locations, growth patterns – it can track as much or as little information as you need. Having all this information in a central location means full visibility for the entire gardening and operations team, and helps you report on the successes and failures of planting. It can also provide detailed information for your Sales Team to assist them in locating available plots and describing surrounding plants and trees.
