If you’ve had to have a tree cut down and are now left with the aftermath, you may already have stump grinding on your list of things to do. Once the stump is ground, however, you’ve got another question to answer: what should you do with the space now that the stump is gone? Fortunately, there are some great ways to utilize this part of your yard so you can enjoy the space where the stump was.
- Plant a New Tree – One of the simplest things you might choose to do after stump grinding is to plant a new tree. If you like the location of the old tree but it needed to come down, replacing it with a new tree will offer the consistency and beauty of landscaping that only trees can.
- Plant Grass – Another popular option for many homeowners who have had a stump grinding service is to fill in the hole where the stump was with topsoil and plant grass seed. This can create a beautiful change in your landscape by opening up the space, as well as make it easier to mow in the spring, summer, and fall. Planting grass is an easy fix that offers long-term solutions for your yard.
- Repurpose the Area – Now that the tree and stump are gone, the possibilities are endless for this area of your yard! You might decide to build a flower bed, plant a vegetable garden, or create a children’s play area, for example. The nice thing is that the options are endless after stump grinding, and you get to choose what will work best for your family and your yard.
