Stump grinders are a faster, cheaper and more convenient alternative to stump removal. This eliminates any possibility of a new root system growing underneath them.
Stumps can eat up valuable yard space, and also pose a threat to children and senior citizens. In addition, they compete for nutrients and water with future plantings. This means that your flowers will have less space to grow.
Stumps are a nuisance in any yard. They can be dangerous, tripping hazards, and difficult to mow and garden around. Additionally, stumps can encourage pests to spread diseases and pests to nearby trees, shrubs, and plants. They also act as a magnet for termites.
Stump grinders are specialized machines that use rotating blades to grind down tree stumps into mulch or sawdust. This leaves a space behind which soil can be added or new trees planted.
Traditional stump removal requires the uprooting of all the stump's root systems, which is labor intensive and costly. Stump-grinding requires less labor, does not disturb the surrounding plant roots and is significantly cheaper than root removal.
Tree stumps are a nuisance in your yard. They take up space that you could otherwise use for other landscaping projects or recreational activities. In addition, they are a tripping hazard that could cause serious injury to anyone who walks through your lawn. Stump Grinder allows you plant what you want in your garden by removing the stumps.
Professional stump cutters use a stump crusher, a mechanical contraption to grind roots and stumps down into small pieces. After ensuring the work area has been cleared of obstructions and electrical lines, they will wear safety gear such as hard hats with earplugs and gloves, chainsaw pants, safety pants, and safety boots.
Stump-grinding involves using a machine to shred a stump and its roots into wood chips the size of mulch, creating a hole that can either be filled with soil or used for potting beds or gardens. Wood chips from this process can be recycled as organic mulch.
Unsightly stumps are a tripping risk for seniors and children who may not realize it until too late. Grinding away these hazards helps prevent injuries.
Professionals perform stump grinding but anyone is able to do it as a project if they follow the right precautions. These include wearing protective gear and removing all rocks and debris prior to starting up the machine.
Stump-grinding is a machine that reduces unwanted tree stumps into the ground as an alternative for pulling. Pulling can cost a lot of money and take a long time.
Leaves left laying around can attract pests like termites. Ants and wood bees will eventually find there way into healthy houses, gardens and trees if left unattended. Grinding your yard will eliminate this breeding ground and nesting area for these bugs.
After grinding down a tree stump, its remaining remains become mulch. This mulch can be used to cover your yard in multiple ways. Mulch is a great addition to flower beds and compost heaps. Wood chips are also perfect for firepit fuel. We recommend raking up the debris left behind after stump-grinding to prevent a mess from forming in your lawn, especially after rainstorms.
