Is your yard cursed by one or more unpleasant looking tree stumps? If so, you should strongly consider stump grinding to tidy up your yard. Stump grinding is a tree removal service that eliminates unwanted stumps after a tree has died, fallen, or been cut. Many tree removal and landscaping companies offer stump grinding services, and there are many reasons why this service would benefit you and your lawn.
Aesthetically Pleasing and More Space
If you prefer a tidy lawn with neat hedges and incredible landscaping, then an ugly tree stump won’t be doing your yard any favors. Stump grinding can change all of that. The service is affordable and can vastly improve the look of your lawn while also increasing its value. Stump grinding makes more sense, especially if you have a smaller yard, as a tree stump can take up a large amount of space above ground and even more below. Once a tree stump is removed, you then have room for all kinds of activities and garden features such as a flower bed, hedges, tables, chairs, or even a pond. The possibilities are endless.
Safety and Convenience
Tree stumps can be a serious inconvenience when it comes to mowing your lawn. Having to navigate around them is troublesome, and accidentally hitting them can do severe damage to your lawnmower. Tree stumps can also be a trip hazard for your yard, which is even more dangerous for children living in your home. If a neighbor or guest were to trip over one of these stumps, you could face a serious lawsuit for their injuries. Stump grinding removes all of these problems for you.
Evading Unwanted Pests and Growth
Whenever a tree stump is left behind, it can potentially cause new trees to pop up around it. Usually, new growth from tree stumps can create a cluster of tinier trees to grow around at its base. Other than being unpleasant to look at, this group of younger trees can also damage any nearby plants because they also absorb nutrients and water from the soil. Tree stumps are also home to many pests. This includes termites, ants, beetles, and wood borers. You run the risk of those pests making their way into your home if you don’t take proper action. Stump grinding can eliminate any pests or unwanted trees that might pop up.
