Whether a tree that is on your property has fallen or you have recently performed a do it yourself removal, you might now be stuck with an unsightly tree stump somewhere in your backyard. Because your tree’s root system grows and sprouts in an outward direction, it could spread throughout your entire yard, making it quite tricky to uproot entirely. So, what are your options with a visible tree stump? Read on to learn precisely how to deal with them.
Repurpose the Stump to Grow Something New
Where one plant’s light might have ended, another can begin. If you can remove its inner remnants, you could very easily reuse your tree stump for growing some new plants. Simply fill the hollow space with some potting mix or soil (with a little sand to ensure proper drainage), plant a few seeds, and watch new life sprout.
Depending on the size of your tree stump, you could use your new DIY planter to grow some shallow-root plants. These include
