Continued Root Growth
Another side effect of attracting pests is grass dying. If you notice patches, trails, or strips of dead grass, that could be from pests tunneling underneath and feeding on the grass. You can know for sure by doing a soak test. To do this, you pour soapy water over the suspected area. Anything living underneath will come to the surface for air, and you’ll know if your yard is affected.
The decomposition process of the stump could also cause dead grass. The fungi need nitrogen to break down the stump, so it draws it from the ground. This could deplete the surrounding soil and cause dead grass. Professional stump grinding makes sure the stump is well below ground and disrupts root growth. This means the stump will provide nutrients to the surrounding area instead of taking them away.
What Our Professional Stump Grinding Services Do For You
How Professional Stump Grinding Works
2. We use a chainsaw to remove the stump as close as we can to the ground.
3. After the stump is mostly level, we use the stump grinder in side-to-side and back-and-forth motions to remove the stump until it is four to sixteen inches below ground.
4. Once the stump is below ground, we fill the hole and clean the surrounding area.
