How Professional Stump Grinding is the Best Way to Restore Your Yard’s Health

Has your yard been looking more unhealthy than usual? It could be that leftover stump. A decomposing tree stump can attract pests, disease, and more to cause issues for surrounding plants. But you don’t have to wait for the stump to decompose entirely, that could take years. Professional stump grinding can remove your stump now to help you restore your yard’s health. Here’s how.

Continued Root Growth

Although the top of the tree might be removed, that doesn’t mean the roots have stopped growing. Unless your tree was sick or dying, there is a likely possibility that the root system is still healthy underneath. If the stump isn’t removed, it could continue to grow and draw away nutrients from other trees and plants. It’s also possible for the roots to be entangled with other plants’ roots and suffocate them. A professional stump grinding service can help you remove that stump and protect your other plants.

Attracts Pests

If you notice more pests in your yard than usual, that leftover stump could be to blame. The decomposing stump provides good shelter for a pest. It’s dark, cool, and damp; perfect for a new home. The stump could attract bugs, rodents, snakes, and other pests. However, professional stump grinding can cut them off at the source by removing the leftover stump.

Dead Grass

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.

Spreads Disease

Along with pests, a decomposing tree stump also attracts fungi. Fungi naturally appear as part of the decomposition process, but some could be pathogenic and spread to other plants. To prevent your leftover stump from attracting and spreading disease, have a professional stump grinding service remove it.

What Our Professional Stump Grinding Services Do For You

Our professional stump grinding service has one goal, to help your landscape look its best by removing the source of its issues: that leftover tree stump. We do this with a stump grinder. This is a special machine with a rotating blade that grinds the stump down to below ground level. Once it’s gone, your yard will be restored and ready to grow something new.

How Professional Stump Grinding Works

1. We clear the area of any obstacles and debris. If anything gets caught in the rotating blade, it could fly up and injure the user or someone else in the area.

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.
