Groundskeepers are responsible for the general maintenance and upkeep of an outdoor setting. They work for private and public companies, sports facilities and public parks where their main duty is to ensure upkeep of the grounds.

They perform a number of activities like weeding, planting, mulching and mowing to make the area designated to them, into a piece of art. They also perform duties such as pesticide control and ensuring that the grounds are free of litter at all times.

Cover letters for groundskeeper positions need a little extra spice in them. They should specifically chart out the candidate’s ability to work in the outdoors and knowledge of following precise instructions for landscaping activities.

The following cover letter sample will provide you with an idea on how to write one for your own job application as a groundskeeper.

Dear Mr. Hemmingway:

My aesthetic sense coupled with my knowledge and experience in landscaping arena make me the perfect candidate for the Groundskeeper position at ETS. I acknowledge the fact that the grounds of your company are quite vastly spread and only the best maintenance crew can truly do justice to them.

Extensive experience as a groundskeeper is not my sole virtue. I take a personal interest in all tasks that I do and this can be seen in my work. Although I have advanced knowledge of mixing and using pesticides, I prefer to work organically as much as I can and only take assistance of pesticides when it becomes absolutely necessary. I can operate automatic mowers and able to maintain other tools and equipment used for the purpose of landscaping and maintenance.

In addition to this, I have great insight when it comes to managing planting activities as I have been formally trained in the different factors that affect different types of trees. I was awarded a mid-year bonus for carving out immaculate shapes from bushes and trees, the photographs of which were published in Amazing Décor.

Working for ETS will provide me with a great challenge which I am excited to undertake. I am available at (000) 451-7845 if you need any information that can expedite the selection procedure.

Thank you for your time and consideration.


Best regards,

Brad Collins
