Between mosquitoes and potential snakes, there’s enough in your Florida backyard that you have to watch out for and your leftover tree stump shouldn’t be one of them. A tree stump can cause your backyard to be more dangerous than you think, but there is a way to make sure you, your property, and your plants are safe. Our stump grinding services can make your backyard safe again along with other benefits. Here is what it can do for you.
Prevent a Tripping Hazard
If your tree stump isn’t easily visible in your yard, it could be a potential tripping hazard. You or someone else might not be paying attention and walk into the stump and injure themselves. Our stump grinding service makes sure the stump is well below ground so it can’t cause this problem.
Save Your Property from Damage
While the tree might be gone, the roots aren’t. Unless the tree was diseased or dying, there’s a good chance the roots are healthy and still growing underneath. If this is the case, the growing roots can cause broken pipes, uneven pavement, or a cracked foundation. The roots might also entangle themselves in other plants’ roots and suffocate them. Our stump grinding services cut off the roots’ source of nutrients and prevent them from damaging your yard.
Stop Disease from Spreading
A tree stump can not only be physically damaging to others, yourself, or your property, but it can also be damaging to your plants. As the tree stump decomposes, it naturally attracts fungi as a part of the decomposition process. It breaks the wood down into nitrogen and returns it to the soil. But some fungi can cause disease and spread to the surrounding plants. Our stump grinding services can remove the stump before that becomes an issue.
What Are Our Professional Stump Grinding Services?
1. The first thing we do is clear the area. We want to make sure that there are no obstacles in the way or any debris that could potentially fly back and hit the operator or someone else nearby.
2. After the area is clear, we use a chainsaw to remove as much of the stump as possible. We want it to be as near to the ground as we can to make the job easier and more efficient.
3. Then we lower the stump grinder onto the stump. Using side-to-side and back-and-forth motions, we remove the stump until it is four to sixteen inches below ground.
4. Once the stump is underground, we fill the hole and clean the area.
Benefits of Professional Stump Grinding
Our stump grinding services not only make your backyard safe again, but they can benefit your yard in other ways too. Here’s what you can expect from our stump grinding services:
You don’t have to wait for the entire stump to decompose, our stump grinding services can remove it now.
Restore Yard’s Health
With the stump gone, the root source of pests, dead grass, and disease are gone too.
The stump grinder turns the stump into mulch, which we clean up or can return to your yard for extra nutrients.
Remove Access to Roots
Without the stump, the root system no longer has access to nutrients. As the roots decay, they can no longer take nutrients from other plants, but they will instead provide nourishment.
A New Beginning
With the stump out of the way, you now have a smooth foundation for a new addition to your yard. We can help you determine what comes next.
