How Our Experts Ensure Your Stump Removal Is Done Safely and Efficiently
When it comes to stump removal, it’s not something you want to tackle on your own. With the powerful rotating blade of a stump grinder, it takes experience and proper training to use it safely, which is why it’s a job better left to professionals. At Progressive Lawn and Landscaping, we put safety first to ensure the job is done well without damage to our workers or your property. Here are some precautions we take to ensure safe and effective stump removal.
Before we begin the stump removal process, we schedule a consultation at your property. During this visit, we assess the number of stumps you need removed along with their size, that way we can give you an accurate and fair quote for the cost and labor. While we survey the property, we also identify any underground power and utility lines to ensure we won’t disrupt them later. By having an idea of the size of the project beforehand, we can better prepare ourselves and our equipment to ensure safe and efficient work.
When working with a stump grinder, safety is a must. We make sure our team equips themselves with the proper safety gear before every job. This includes steel-toed boots, heavy-duty gloves, and safety goggles to safeguard us from any flying debris. Even though we keep a safe distance from the grinding wheel, we believe in taking every precaution. For anyone who’s not working on stump removal, we ask them to stay at a safe distance away from the stump grinder so they won’t be hit with any debris.
Before we start stump grinding, we ensure the work area is clear of any obstacles. That means moving any possible chairs, decorations, tables, and other equipment. This is so we have a clear space for the stump grinder, and to ensure we don’t damage your property. We also remove any rocks, twigs, or debris that may get caught in the wheel and fly off. This helps protect us and your property. By clearing the area, we ensure an easy and safe stump grinding experience for everyone.
Quality equipment is important to ensure that the job is done right and that our crew is as safe as possible. A stump grinder is a heavy-duty machine that can derail a project if it has issues. That’s why we use nothing less than top-of-the-line equipment that we keep running smoothly with routine maintenance.
Before we begin our stump removal process, we level the stump first. We use a chainsaw to level the stump, getting it as close to the ground as possible. This step not only speeds up the process but also makes the job more efficient and safe. The less amount of stump we have to remove means less flying debris and a reduced risk of being hit by it.
Our work doesn’t stop at ground level. We grind the stump four to sixteen inches below the ground, ensuring it won’t pose a tripping hazard and won’t be an obstacle for your lawn equipment. By grinding the stump below ground it also prevents the roots from having access to nutrients. Over time, they will die out and return their nutrients to the soil, supporting your yard’s health.
Once the stump is below ground, we’re not going to leave you with a hole in your yard. Our job isn’t finished until we fill it in, ensuring you or someone else won’t trip when they come across it. Any leftover mulch pieces are also tilled into the soil, leaving your yard cleaner and neater. Now your yard is smooth and ready for your next project!
