Sample Groundskeeper Cover Letter

A groundskeeper cover letter is essential if you wish to land a job in this field. Be sure to list your accomplishments and training and to let the hiring manager know your specific area of expertise such as maintaining a variety of facilities, including athletic fields, golf courses, cemeteries, university campuses, and parks. In addition to caring for sod, plants, and trees, groundskeepers rake and mulch leaves, clear snow from walkways and parking lots, and use irrigation methods to water the grounds and prevent waste. All groundskeeper cover letters should be specific and complete in order to attract the attention of a hiring manager.

Dear Mr. King:

I am aware of your listing on JobBankUSA.com for a groundskeeper and I'd like to apply for this position. I have worked for Palmerville Public Campground as part of the team of groundskeepers for the past two years.

I look forward to hearing from you and would welcome getting together for an interview if you have some time next week. Please contact me at 786-909-8976 and I will be happy to come to your office to discuss this job and your requirements.

Thank you very much for accepting my cover letter and for giving me an opportunity to tell you my qualifications for the position.
