I have a friend who wants me to do some landscaping at his family plot at a LARGE cemetary. Should I do it?

The reason I ask is because cemetaries are HIGHLY unionized. Wouldn't want to have a bunch of flat tires on the truck when I go to leave.

Unionized ?

I have found that cemetary workers are usually helpful as long as you follow the rules as far as plant types and height that are allowed. I dont know of any cemetary unions around here. Where in the northeast are you?

That's nonsense. There's no union. I work full time at one church and contract the lawn at another. It anything, they want English speaking people that they know and can trust. Many churches have day care centers and don't want to worry about the help.

Believe it or not...private plot landscape design is very popular in some Celtic communities. Pearl River, NY is predominately Irish society that holds such acts as a fitting tribute to the dead. I doubt that you would recieve any negative feedback in any community. I also don't think that the cemetary workers would really care....they're on the clock..it's not like you're infringing on their turf and stealing their pay..
