If there’s a tree in your yard that’s dead, dying, diseased, or poses a potential risk, you probably have plans to remove it. Grinding the tree stump that’s left behind will improve the appearance of your yard. However, after stump grinding, you’re left with a hole full of wood chips. When you lose a tree, it can take its toll on the aesthetics of your outdoor living space. Suddenly, there’s an empty spot where there was once an abundance of life.
Lawn care after tree removal isn’t something you should jump into without a plan. It takes a little work to ensure the ground is in the best shape possible for whatever your plans include. If you want a new tree, you shouldn’t plant it in the exact location of the old tree because much of the root system will still remain. It’s important to shift a new tree slightly to give it the best chance to thrive. Also keep in mind that it might take some time for the grass to grow and the ground to settle enough to totally blend in with the rest of the yard. You can expect slight soil settlement within the area over the first few years following tree and stump removal.
Springtime provides moisture and warm air, which are very beneficial to grass growth. There is still time to prepare those bare spots for a green spring and summer.
