Stump Grinding Acworth
It is hard to call yourself a full tree removal service in Acworth without offering the very important service of stump grinding. Stump grinding Acworth is a hodgepodge of guys with the old pickup trucks using rented stump grinders from Home Depot or Sunbelt driving around and overcharging to do a terrible job.
Paulding Arbor Solutions has one of the best stump grinders money can buy. And because of this, we have the ability to grind through stumps in a very short amount of time. And by saving time we can ultimately save you money. Big money.
Stump Grinding Service Acworth
Paulding Arbor Solutions most certainly offers just tree removal. We will come in and drop your trees and leave them where they lay. We also offer the service where we will remove the trees from the property as well. Lastly, we offer both of these things including stump grinding.
No tree service is fully complete unless you get those stumps ground, though. It can be very unappealing to have a bunch of stumps on your property. No one wants this. You got those trees removed for a reason so spend the little bit of extra money and get some stump grinding performed.
Stump Grinding Advantages
So the question inevitably becomes, “What should I get? Stump removal or stump grinding?” Well there are advantages and disadvantages to both so let’s talk about what those things are. Some advantages to stump grinding is, first and foremost, cost. Stump grinding is a much cheaper service than stump removal.
Stump removal can be very challenging and often requires the use of an excavator or a bobcat with a special attachment (assuming you want it done quickly that is). Because of this, stump removal tends to cost two or three times as much as stump grinding. The other main advantage of stump grinding is that it does not leave a huge hole in your yard.
If you don’t mind the bulk of the stump rotting over time, then stump grinding is most certainly the service for you.
Stump Removal Advantages
So what are the advantages of stump removal? Well, there are a couple but it really ultimately depends on what you want to do. If your goal is to build an extension onto your home or to put a pool in, then stump removal is for you.
With grinding, the bulk of the stump still remains just below the ground. If you are building an extension or a garage, this is not a good thing. The stump will eventually rot, leaving soft spot in the ground which could cause sagging at that point in the foundation. This is something you definitely want to avoid.
Things to Consider
Removing the stump will allow you to bring in fill dirt and pack it down so that this eventual sagging does not happen. Another advantage of stump removal has to do with getting grass to grow. If getting trees removed from your yard so that you can have grass grow is your end goal, the stump removal is the route you want to take.
Because the bulk of the stump remains with stump grinding, often it can be difficult to get grass to grow there for a couple of years. Once the stump rots below ground, then grass will be able to grow.
But like I said, this could take years depending on the size of the stump. Stump removal will give you nice fresh dirt on which you can grow grass.
When it is all said and done, choosing between stump grinding and stump removal should rely on two things. One, what is your budget. If you have a slightly larger budget, then stump removal may be your best bet, especially if you are looking to build or have grass grow in the spot sooner rather than later.
The second thing it relies in is specifically what you are trying to do. If you don’t mind having a bare spot in your yard for a couple of years and your budget is a little smaller, then stump grinding is likely the choice for you.
