Regardless if you have a small or large yard, chances are that you want to take advantage of every inch of space. Sometimes this means rearranging the outdoor furniture, trimming back some plants or even removing your tree stumps. If left in the yard, tree stumps won’t only occupy much-needed space, but they’ll also impact on the aesthetics of your property. In this blog, we’ll be discussing the major benefits of Melbourne stump grinding services.
Normally when you have a tree removed, the stump will be left behind (unless you had organised for it to be removed). With this stump being left behind, many people don’t realise the impact that it can have on their garden. There’s actually a myriad of problems that can go wrong and so we’ve decided to share this article to help identify the benefits of stump grinding.
Melbourne Stump Grinding Services – Benefits
As we mentioned earlier, leftover stumps become an eyesore. This will therefore have a negative impact on the value of your property. By removing these stumps, you can focus on the more important issues for improving your property’s value.
When a stump is left behind, bugs and insects such as termites, beetles, ants and wood borers will begin to appear. As the wood begins to rot or decay, these unwanted pests will begin to invade your yard.
Once a tree has been removed, the stump will eventually form new life. This new life can be a mixture of shoots/sprouts that will not only look unattractive but can also have a negative impact on your garden. As weeds start to grow from your stump they will naturally take the nutrients from the plants located close by.
One of the biggest benefits of Melbourne stump grinding services is the improved safety factor. As grass grows around the stump it becomes harder to see. This, therefore, poses a threat to passers-by as they may easily trip or stumble over the obstacle. Furthermore, if you’re cutting the lawns you may very well forget the exact location of it and could lead to unforgivable damage to your cutting deck.
As we mentioned above, stumps do take up space. Although the stump may not have a massive diameter, you will notice the space it occupies when you try to position backyard furniture or activities around it.
