Tips For Cleaning Up Your Yard After A Tree Removal

Blog

Whether a tree in your yard has collapsed partly after a storm or has been causing unwanted shade, it's a good idea to become familiar with what you can do with the aftermath of tree removal. Many people allow a leftover stump to remain on their property, bringing down the aesthetic appeal of their yard and leaving a reminder of the tree that was removed.

With the following tips, you can improve the appearance of your yard and make it appear as if a tree was never there.

Remove Leftover Branches and Debris

The first thing that you'll want to do after getting a tree removed is take care of all the mess that is left behind. This means collecting all the branches and sticks that have likely been littered all over your yard. Making use of a rake and keeping an eye out for debris that may have been swept away by the wind can help you clean up your yard significantly.

Take Care of Removing the Stump

The biggest mistake some people make after getting a tree removed is leaving the stump behind. Not only can this look bad in your yard, it can also be a tripping hazard and take up space that you could be using for something else. Stump removal can be done in a number of ways, including digging it out and burning it.

Exploring all the options can help you make the right choice for your yard.

Consider the Landscaping to Use

After a tree and stump has been removed, you'll want to take care of where the tree used to be. If you don't properly fill the hole, it can become a noticeable dent in your yard that could be a risk for tripping. Filling it with sawdust or dirt is a good start, along with working on the landscaping around the area.

Rely on Professional Help

If you want a tree to be removed efficiently, it may be best to hire professionals experienced with tree removal, such as Jonny's Tree & Landscaping Co., LLC. Due to the heavy weight of trees and the work that goes into taking them down, including the stump, professionals can help make the process as easy as possible for you.

After you've made the decision to get a tree removed on your property, you'll need to put in the effort to explore your options and see for yourself what needs to be done to remove the tree and stump entirely. Carefully planning out the process can ensure that your yard looks its best afterwards.

Construction Needs in Times of Disaster

I live in the middle of the desert, so I never thought that flooding would be a problem. However, a few months ago my town was hit with a huge storm. These freak storms are called "Hundred Year Storm" because the chances of them happening are once in a hundred years. Needless to say, no one was prepared for the aftermath--especially not the city sewage system. All this extra water had no where to go, and suddenly, I found my basement flooded. It wasn't a fun experience, but we dealt with it the best we could. Since then, I have spent a lot of time looking into different options for sewage, water lines, and other related things. We're now even looking into building a new house. This blog is the result of my ongoing research.
