Have you had trees cut down and removed in your backyard, but still have stumps? While it may seem harmless to leave them there, there are benefits to removing those old stumps. A professional landscaping service can provide stump removal service to clear those remnants of former trees away. Here are four reasons that you should consider this investment.
- Wasted space. When a stump is in your yard, it reduces the options for landscaping and hardscapes. That space could be used for a pond, patio or just more lawn, giving you more room to add features to your landscaping.
- Aesthetics. A tree stump is not attractive, especially when it is constantly growing new sprouts and other plants around it. An old stump can make your yard look unkempt, even when the rest of your landscaping is well maintained.
- Injury hazard. A protruding stump can be an injury hazard for kids and others enjoying activities in your backyard. Remove the obstacle so no one accidentally trips over that old stump and hurts themselves while playing frisbee or other games in your yard.
- More work. A stump makes more work for keeping your yard maintained. It is one more item that must be edged and can get in the way when mowing your yard. Plus, some stumps re-sprout and start growing a new tree, making more work for you in the long run.
If you have one or more old tree stumps in your backyard, contact a local landscaper that offers stump removal. It can make your yard safer and with less work, with more space to improve the appearance and function.
