Groundskeepers care for the grounds of a wide variety of public and private settings, including schools, state parks, baseball fields, botanical gardens, and resorts. The job of being a groundskeeper (sometimes called a "landscaper") can involve planting, weeding, mowing lawns, trimming hedges and trees, watering gardens, controlling pests, and more. If you love working outdoors and know how to use a lawn mower, you might enjoy being a groundskeeper.
