How to Perfect Your Yard After Stump Grinding
There is nothing more frustrating than having a stump left behind after a tree has been destroyed. Not only are they unsightly, but they can also cause damage to the lawn by becoming a breeding ground for pests and diseases. While stumps are considered to be ugly, your yard doesn’t have to stay that way.
With the right tools and knowledge, you can make your yard beautiful again. However, you might not know what to do with your yard next after stump grinding. This article will give you ideas on how you can reclaim your yard.
What is stump grinding?
Stump grinding is a process in which a large machine is placed over a tree stump. The disks within the machine begin to spin at high speed to grind the tree stump to the ground. The most significant benefit to griding down a stump rather than removal is that it leaves little impact on the ground. This means that you can quickly get rid of that unsightly stump without disturbing the soil underneath. Because of this, your yard will quickly recover from the damage.
Add New Grass
One of the most common ways to bring back the beauty of your yard is to add new grass over the area. Although it will take time for the grass to cover the newly ground stump, it can make the lawn look new again. Typically, you’ll begin to see new grass growth in 3-28 days, depending on your climate and the type of grass. Another excellent option for those who may be a little more impatient is sod installation. Sod is regrown grass that already has an established root system. Simply lay the sod down on the empty area and care for it as instructed. Soon the root system will begin to grow into the ground and give you the lush green grass you’ve always wanted.
Plant a Garden
