Have A Tree Stump Leftover When Tree Removed? 2 Tips On Getting The Stump Removed

Johnni Knight

If you had a tree cut down and left the stump behind, this can be an eyesore for your yard. Fortunately, you can hire someone to remove the tree stump for you. Below are two tips to help you get this done.

Hire a Tree Stump Removal Company

It is difficult to remove a tree stump as the roots have likely spread wide and deep. Instead, hire a tree stump removal company. The tree stump removal contractor will use a shovel to dig around the tree stump. This will remove any debris that can get in the way. A chainsaw may be used first to remove the stump that is sticking out of the ground. A stump grinder is then used to grind the rest of the stump. The stump removal company will ensure that all roots are cut so they will not spread.

There is a lot of wood that is chipped away when the stump is ground down. If the tree that was removed had no kind of disease, you can use these wood chips as mulch if you have any flower gardens. Mulch is beneficial as it will help block the sun and water from any weeds you may have. Mulch also holds in moisture for your flowers. 

Refill the Hole 

When the stump is removed, you will be left with a big hole. The tree stump removal service may offer to fill the hole in, or you may have to do it on your own. Contact a landscape contractor to determine the best type of soil to use. This is important as the soil needs to be healthy so grass can grow over the hole.

When planting grass, you need to make sure you purchase the type of grass that you currently have on your lawn. If you are not sure, take a few samples of the grass to a garden center, and they can help you determine the type of seeds you should buy. 

When you buy the seeds spread them over the soil and water well. It will not take a lot of time for the seeds to sprout and for grass to grow to cover the soil. When finished, you will never know there was a stump sitting there. 

The tree stump removal company that you hire can give you much more information about removing your tree stump. They can also give you tips on how to fill in the hole and plant grass seed in many cases.
