Tree Stump Grinding Service in San Antonio TX — Handy Green Landscaping

Tree Stump Grinding in San Antonio TX

Stump grinding is the process of removing a stump that is currently lodged in the ground with the use of a machine called a “stump grinder.” This machine has a large heavy-duty wheel with a blade that has sharp teeth. The blade spins around rapidly until the stump is “ground” out. The stump grinder works like a chipper at ground level. We make passes back and forth over and through the stump with the machine until the stump is ground 4-12 inches below the surface.

Cutting down a tree often feels like the easy part of the process when you’re staring at a large stump in the middle of your yard. How will you ever remove it from your landscaping?  It’s an eyesore. It gets in the way. You’d love to remove it and replace it with grass. Or remove it to maintain the consistency of the landscaping throughout the rest of your property.

Benefits of Hiring a Professional Tree Stump Grinding Service in San Antonio TX

While stump removal might seem like an easy process, it actually requires a lot of strenuous work. If you do not have the necessary heavy machinery to reduce the level of manual work, getting to the core is difficult at best.

Renting the necessary equipment can be expensive, especially if the project takes longer than a weekend or even a day. A professional tree service company has the proper equipment in place. Not only do we have the equipment, we know how to operate it expertly.

Do you really want bits and pieces of wood scattered all around your property after the stumps have disappeared? An experienced stump grinding company makes sure that after they have finished removing the stumps, we leave you with a squeaky clean property.

Once you have removed the stump, you will want to do something with the open space. If you don’t have landscaping experience, or lack creative ideas after the job is done, you’ll have the added bonus of talking with our landscaping experts that can help you find a solution to the problem.

If you are stuck with a large open space once the stump is gone, our Professional Landscaping Service can make suggestions and help you with the process. You can plant other vegetation in the spot, including a new tree that can complement your landscape, or add a stone project or a fountain. The options are endless.  Our Tree Stump Grinding Service is fast and effective.  Our team will get your Landscape back into pristine condition in no time.

When Should You Plant Sod or Fertilize Your Lawn?

 Lawn Fertilization is important to make your lawn green and lush, providing much-needed nutrients for the grass. Without fertilization, your lawn will simply not be the green beautiful turf you really want. It can be just as important to good lawn care as regular mowing is.  So when should you fertilize your lawn? Here are some general tips:

Four to six times each year is a good rule of thumb

Generally speaking, lawn care professionals recommend fertilizing four to six applications this year in order to have a good, healthy lawn. Of course, your lawn may need more or less than this, depending upon its current condition. Also, cool-season grasses and warm-season grasses have different fertilizer needs, with different fertilizer treatments as well as timeframes. You may want to talk to your Lawn Care Professional about what schedule would work best for your lawn.

Don’t fertilize if you cannot water

If your area is under drought conditions, or is experiencing excessively hot temperatures, fertilizing the lawn may not be a good idea. That is because fertilizer works best when you can water the lawn afterwards.  If you are unable to water the lawn, the fertilizer could end up “burning” your lawn. So keep that in mind when it comes to lawn fertilization.

What are the two most important treatments?

Arguably the two most important lawn fertilization treatments are the following: the first one of the year, in late winter and early spring, and the early to late fall treatment. These would be the first and last lawn treatments of the year. The first treatment will help your lawn grow after it has been dormant all winter, and can help you grow new seeds after winter has been harsh to your lawn. The last treatment of the year can help protect your lawn from the effects of a cold winter.
