Maybe it's a US / UK difference, but that wouldn't be "groundskeeping" 
in the UK.  When looking for a tag for 
https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/4898117884 I went with 
"shop=garden_machinery" after looking at taginfo. 
https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/search?q=groundskeeping#values does 
have higher usage, but isn't really the correct English term.

For an example of what _would_ be called groundskeeping in the UK (think 
kit to create, manage and maintain sports grounds specifically) 
https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/171855256 is I think one, and 
https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/192123860 nearly is too, but I 
couldn't think of a good tag for either.

Best Regards,
