How to Carry Out a Stump Grinding Project All On Your Own

Landscapers are specialists who are capable of grinding tree remnants in your garden. However, because they are experienced, skilled, and overall trustworthy, they charge quite a sum when they are hired to grind stumps in any property. The pay usually range from $90 to $150. It can even cost more depending on the diameter of the stump you want removed. The cost will also vary depending on what tree cutting machine will be used for the project. If you don’t have the time for stump grinding, if you have a few to grind, or if you don’t want the hassle, then hiring a professional is certainly a good idea. However, if you don’t want to spend money on a task that you can do on your own, then you can just take on the stump grinding project on your own. To be able to grind a stump even without professional help, you can rent a machine specifically designed for grinding tree remnants. The rental is also the perfect choice if you have a neighbor who also has recently cut a tree in their yard. You can divide the cost of the machine rental with the neighbor since it is more economical to do that. After you have rented out the stump grinder, be sure that you have the appropriate safety gear to wear for the task. You should never use the machine without wearing the appropriate eye and ear protection. The first thing that you have to do is use a garden mattock or shove to remove rocks around the stump’s base. The rocks should be removed to avoid damaging the cutting wheel’s teeth. After that, you have to use a chain saw to trim the stump as close to the ground as possible. Use a hydraulic lever for raising the grinder wheel several inches above the remnant. Slowly swing the wheel from side to side, with the use of the hydraulic lever, so that you can clear out the wood. When you are using this machine, be sure that you stand right at the control panel and away from the cutting wheel for safety purposes. You can then slowly grind your way through to the stump’s other side. If you thinkt hat the freshly dug hole is at least four inches underground, you can stop and check. Remove the wood chips that have fallen inside the hole. After that, fill the hole up with screened topsoil. Tamp on the topsoil down. You can then rake the soil lightly....
