Tree Removal isn’t The Last Step! Your Landscaping Too Needs a Push

Who doesn’t like surrounded by lush green foliage of trees? But that doesn’t mean trees can’t be a nuisance. Well! My nature lovers, it’s true! There are a multitude of reasons that you’ll have to get some trees removed. For instance, 

  1. Some are just getting old and disease-laden.
  2. Some die.
  3. Some grow and start becoming a visual nuisance.
  4. Some start posing a danger to the property.
  5. Some get damaged that’s non-repairable.

At times like those, you’ll have to call ECO Tree Experts to remove such trees to improve your home’s aesthetic appeal and your home’s resale value. But unlike what everyone thinks, it’s not the last step. You’ll have to work a bit on the landscaping to get rid of the stump left behind after the tree removal. 

So, what next? Keep reading, and you’ll learn more.

Remove the Unnecessary Dump And Grow Grass

If you are not someone who is familiar with gardening or landscaping rules, let us tell you one thing. If you want to grow grass, the pH of the soil must be balanced to grow healthy roots. In the case of tree removal, some of the remaining wood chips or remaining roots can gradually change the soil’s pH, which might hamper the growth of trees. 

So, you must prepare the area by removing such wood chips. The next step is to layer the soil with nitrogen fertilizer and layer it with another layer of soil containing compost. Repeat the process until the area becomes adjacent to the surrounding area. 

Then sprinkle grass seeds and water them and cover them with hay or straw. Gradually the layer of grass will become visible and pleasing to the eyes. 

Create a Flower Bed

This is probably the most eye-pleasing way to cover the hole made in the ground. This goes without saying that colors add vibrancy to the area. You can turn on your creative mind and choose the type of flowers you wish to grow for your bed. 

But, as we mentioned before, you must remove the wood chips, rocks, or remaining grass. You can plant hostas, marigolds, or purple coneflowers using this. You can also go for clump-forming perennials such as Chrysanthemums. By doing this, you can avoid the issues that come with clustered plants, such as stunted growth, pest infestation, or fungal infections. 

Create a Stone or Wooden Path 

While this requires some approvals or requires an extra bit of cash, it entirely turns your area into a masterpiece. However, if you hire a tree removal company that provides landscaping services, you can eventually save a bit of cash. 

Wrapping up

Tree removal is not a choice. Sometimes it’s fallen by a storm, while other times, it starts creating hindrance to the property or the building itself. You can use the stump or the tree’s remaining part to create an unusual or unconventional garden. You can fill the hollow part with soil, add your fav plants, and create a unique place for yourself. 

But even if you want to play with the stump, it’s better to consult a tree removal specialist and let them help you create an outstanding landscape.
