Three Reasons To Hire A Professional To Remove Stumps On Your Property
Stump removal is a common landscaping service that, like its name would suggest, involves contractors using specialized machinery to remove dead stumps and the entire collected root network underground from your yard. Due to the potential size of some stumps and the breadth of their roots, such a process is necessarily extensive and can be quite drawn out to complete. However, there are a few good reasons why you would want to have stumps removed from the property of either your residential or commercial property.
One of the first and most important reasons why you should consider removing the dead stumps from your yard is the safety consideration that comes with having large stumps in your yard. Stumps represent a low and hard surface that could cause serious bodily harm if someone trips and falls. This is especially true if you frequently have young children or elderly individuals visiting your property or if you have workers in the yard at multiple times throughout the year.
Another major advantage of having the dead stumps on your property removed entirely is that it creates a clean and fresh aesthetic on your property. For residential properties, this can help boost your home's curb appeal and result in higher listing prices, a serious consideration if you are thinking about moving anytime in the future. For commercial properties, a cleaner landscape is more inviting to potential clients and gives the appearance of your property a cleaner, more professional look. For any type of property, it also creates a blank slate of grass and yard that can then be designed into any sort of landscape or aesthetic that you want to create, opening up many more customization options.
Unlike stump grinding, which takes specialized equipment and grinds down the surface of the stump until it is no longer visible, stump removal will also take out all of the attached roots of the stump. This means that there is no chance that the tree will eventually rebloom and grow in the place of the original stump, which is a distinct, though rare, possibility if you simply have the stump ground down. This can also help save you money on landscaping procedures in the future, as you will never have to have the stump or any stump related growth in that area removed again.
