When you look out on your Croton-on-Hudson, NY, backyard and all you see are the stumps from trees that have been cut down, you might think that it isn’t worth trying to remove them. But, by using excavation contractors to remove those stumps, you’ll soon have space to plant an amazing outdoor space.
Problems with Leftover Stumps
Stumps that have been left in the ground can present a number of problems. For one thing, they are obviously hazardous when your children want to run and play outdoors. Falling over a stump can cause a serious injury and, unfortunately, you could be liable if something happens when their friends come over to play.
If you hit a stump while mowing—not to mention they are a pain to mow around—you can plan for some mower repairs. Either a small or large repair means your mower has to go to the shop, and you wouldn’t be able to mow in the meantime.
The decaying stumps attract insects such as beetles, ants, termites, and others looking for a home and food. When they attract wood boring pests like termites and carpenter bees, these pests can affect your home, too.
Stumps are not dead, so they can sprout again to grow new trees. This is a never-ending battle to cut the shoots as they grow, and they don’t just grow one tree, they grow multiple trees from just one stump.
You could grind down the stumps, but that leaves mulch and debris all over the yard.
The stumps take a long time to rot away completely, but during the in-between time they don’t look nice. And they take up space that you could be using for more pleasurable outdoor activities.
Why Using Excavation Contractors Makes Sense
Successful excavation has as much to do with understanding the terrain as it does with digging. Experienced excavation contractors arrive with knowledge of how to engineer the stump removals to minimize the disruption to your yard, while also grading the finished product so that you don’t end up with drainage problems or huge craters.
The excavation contractor has the right equipment to analyze your property before ever digging a hole and will discuss the plan of action in depth with you to ensure that you understand the process. Using state-of-the-art equipment, they can remove any rocks that are uncovered as part of the excavation and transport them away from the property.
Altering the makeup of the soil beneath your landscape can improve drainage during storms, improve the appearance of your property, and give you the use of your yard that you have always wanted.
Once they remove the stumps and rocks from your Croton-on-Hudson, NY, backyard—or from any part of your yard—your excavation contractor can consult with your landscape designer to prepare your property for the next step in its transformation.
