  • Opening Intro -

    Though trees add so much to a lawn, there are times that they have to be cut down.

    Once the sawdust has settled, you're left with a bunch of stumps cluttering your yard.


Moving forward, it’s important to have a plan of what to do with these stumps and the rest of your lawn around them to ensure your yard continues to look beautiful. To provide some inspiration, here are four possible ways to renovate a stump-filled lawn.

Make Sculpture

If you’re especially creative, then the presence of stumps in your lawn shouldn’t be seen as a hindrance but as an opportunity. Using various woodworking tools, you can carefully carve the different stumps in your yard, resulting in a lawn full of one-of-a-kind lawn ornaments.

If you want to preserve these lawn ornaments, you can cover the exposed part of the stump in an exterior-grade lacquer.

Plant Gardens

If you choose to remove the stumps in your yard, you can use the holes they leave behind for gardens. This option allows you to take advantage of the exposed soil as you plant different varieties of flowers.

If you want to avoid removing the mulch from the stumps, you can use a grapple bucket or another heavy-duty attachment from a company like Steve’s Equipment Attachments to remove the stump in one piece.

Have a Seat

One of the easiest solutions for dealing with left-behind stumps is to transform them into natural benches. As long as the stumps are fairly level and aren’t suffering from significant rot, they will make pleasant sitting areas for you and your family.

Just be sure to watch for any shoots that may begin to grow from the stump, as these could make sitting on the stump quite uncomfortable.

Grow Some Grass

One of the most popular options for renovating a stump-filled lawn is to remove the stumps and plant grass in their place. While this is a good option, it’s important to do the proper prep work to ensure the grass grows well.

This includes removing all the grindings, removing any hidden roots to prevent sunken areas in the future, and filing the area with rich topsoil to give the grass a nutrient-rich place to grow.

Consider Your Options

It’s important to carefully choose what you’ll do with your stumps before you have them removed. After all, if you make the decision to take the stumps out, you won’t be able to replace them later.

Therefore, it’s important that you carefully consider your options to ens
