Do you have stumps messing up your property's flow? Are the stumps presenting a danger to children, animals, or yard equipment? Don't hesitate to give us a call to take care of that stump today.

When tree stumps are present on your land, they can be an eye-sore for all to see, but they can also be unsafe. Unsafe for children who may be playing around them and hazardous for your lawnmower blades. We all know that sound when you hit that root!

Fortunately, American Dream Landscapes has a solution for tree stumps measuring 18 inches or less in diameter. We can grind the stump down for you, take away all the shavings, and backfill the hole, and it will be like that stump was never there.

Then you can move on with your plans to transform your land with a new landscape or enjoy a stumpless future.

Do I need to hire someone to grind my stumps? Can't I do it myself?

You’re not required to hire someone, but once you weigh the pros and cons, it might be better to get someone to take care of that stump for you.

Let’s break it down.

If you want to grind a stump yourself, you’ll most likely have to rent a stump grinder or stump grinding attachment. The rental may require you to have a truck to transport it to your stump’s location. Once you get all of this in place, you’ll have to go through the manual labor of grinding the stump.

If you have never ground a stump before, it can get pretty labor-intensive, depending on what type of machine you rent to grind and the type of wood.

Many things can go wrong during the stump grinding process. Worst case scenario is bodily injury just from not knowing the process or how to use the machine. The “best-case” of something going wrong is not grinding the stump adequately. Then you’ll be stuck with a shorter stump.

So the pros of doing it yourself would be possibly saving a few bucks, which when you add gas, personal time, and physical toll on the body, it might work out even.

Or you can hire American Dream Landscapes to come out and tackle those stumps while you drink a cold glass of water from your porch and watch us get to work.

How long will it take to grind the stump?

Many factors go into the time window of grinding a stump. There is no way to give you a good answer on this page, but we can provide you the factors that will determine time.

Stump Size
The larger the stump the more time it will take to grind.

Wood Type
Is the stump hardwood or softwood? Hardwoods will take longer to grind.

Rotten Status
If the stump has been rotting for some time, it will provide an easier grind, thus taking a shorter amount of time.

Location of Stump
Is the stump right next to a structure? Then it will generally take longer because we’ll have to do a precision grind and get our equipment safely into place. If the stump is in an open field, we can get right to it, and generally, it will take less time.

Do I need to mark utility lines (gas, water, power) before a stump grinding?

Yes! We recommend having all of your utility lines marked to ensure safety during the stump grinding process. A proper stump grinding goes below the surface, so we’ll need to know for safety if there is something important near the stump.

Having all your utility lines marked is an easy and free process provided by VA811.com. Visit their website and follow the instructions to have this service provided for you.

Client Testimonial

Daniel was responsive and gave a fair quote for the work. His crew was professional, knowledgeable, on time, and even worked one day in miserable conditions. The end result is fantastic, safer, and with an attention to craftsmanship better than whomever did the original installation.

We highly recommend American Dream Landscapes!
