When you tackle a landscaping project on your property, big or small, you are likely to leave behind a tree stump or two...or more. And while you could choose to turn your stumps into whimsical planters, you’d probably prefer to get rid of it altogether. Keeping old stumps, especially if there is water nearby, can attract rodents and other pests that you’d probably rather not have living on your property.
Although you can dig out stumps in your yard manually or use a chemical stump remover to speed up the decomposition process, many homeowners prefer to use a stump grinding service. Stump grinding falls squarely in the middle of these options as far as how much labor is required to complete the job, and it is the most popular option for stump removal.
Can I Do it Myself?
The quick answer to this question is sure; you can do it yourself. Stump grinders are available for rent or purchase from home improvement stores, and property owners can then do the stump grinding work themselves. Depending on the diameter of the stump, this project could take anywhere from half an hour to several hours.
But should you do it yourself? Running a grinder is not the easiest or safest of jobs. It is crucial that you take the time to learn how to use the machine correctly and safely. Take care to follow all safety precautions, including wearing eye and ear protection.
The Safer Way? Hire a Stump Grinding Service
To ensure your safety and your peace of mind, the best option is to hire a stump grinding service near you. Professional stump grinders can get the job done promptly, and you do not have to assume the inherent risks in running power tools.
