2 Ways To Get Rid Of A Stump

If you have had a tree that has fallen down or that you cut down, you might have ended up with a stump in your yard that you need to get rid of. You don't want to have that stump sitting in your yard any longer than you have to. A stump can turn into a house for bees, wasps, rats, or other pests. So, if you end up with a stump in your yard, you need to come up with a way to get rid of it. There are different ways that you can do that. 

DIY

One option is to do it yourself. There are several ways that you can do it yourself. One way is that you rent a stump grinder from an equipment rental store. The grinder kind of acts like a chainsaw and just eats away at the stump. It will take some time for the grinder to get the stump all the way down to the ground and you will have to deal with the mess of the chips and sawdust when you are done, but you will still end up with a stump that is gone. You can also get certain chemicals that you can use to rot the stump from the inside out. With those chemicals, you need to drill a series of holes through the stump and then pour them in. Once you have done that, you are going to have to wait for a few days or weeks for it to work. 

Tree Removal Service

Another thing that you can do is to hire a tree removal service to come in and do the removal for you. They will have the time, experience, and tools to get the stump out of your yard as quickly as possible. The nice thing about using a tree service to get rid of everything is that you aren't going to have to clean up the mess from removing the stump. If they come in and use the grinder, they will clean up the mess. You may have to fill up the hole after they leave, but that's better than having to get rid of the stump yourself. 

If you have a stump that you need to get rid of, there are a couple of ways that you can handle it. Which way you do it depends on how handy you feel that you are. To learn more, contact companies like Jonny's Tree & Landscaping Co., LLC.

Learning About Embracing The Natural Landscape

Hello, my name is Whitney Lovette. The property surrounding my home has a ton of natural hills and valleys that make mowing difficult. For a long time, I toyed with the thought of pulling all the grass and having an excavation team regrade my lawn. After some serious thought, I decided to take a different route and create a meandering garden space. The path through the garden takes advantage of the natural landscape to create a magical space for total relaxation. My site will cover the garden construction and upkeep process from beginning to end. Thank you for visiting my website.
