Mowing Around Your Stump

It can take up to 10 years depending on the stump for it to decay all the way.  Think seriously about how many times you will mow your yard over the course of 10 years. It’s a lot. When you mow around a stump it is impossible to get up close to the stump. What this means is that you will either have to weed eat around the stump each time you mow your yard or leave the grass. If you chose to leave the grass growing around your stump it will make your yard look even worse than just the stump and it will also become a hazard because you won’t be able to see the stump and can trip over it.

Stumps Are Tripping Hazards

You would not believe the amount of people who have hurt themselves tripping over a left over stump in their yard after a tree removal. At night or in limited visibility they can be hard to see and can cause serious injury. Often because stumps are hard to mow around there is tall grass surrounding the stumps which furthers the danger that they present to your property. There is a good chance that you know where the stumps on your property are and you avoid them. The problem often occurs when there are others visiting your property that are less familiar with your dead decaying tree stump placements. It can end up being a big liability for you and your family. The last thing that you want is to be involved in a lawsuit because you didn’t remove a simple stump off your property. Call Monkeyman’s Tree Service today. We will make quick work of any stump on your property.

Creating Usable Ground

When you remove a stump from your property, one of the things that it does is it creates usable ground so you can plant something new. When stump grinding is performed correctly the stump is ground down well below the surface of the ground. This allows new root systems to thrive even the root systems of another tree. Stump grinding provides a chemical free way of removing your stump quickly and without much hassle so that you can plant a new landscape. If the stump was in the middle of the yard stump grinding allows you to cover the place that the stump was immediately with dirt and plant grass. It will grow with no hassle over the place the stump was.
