Do you have one or more tree stumps in your yard? You can chop at tree stumps all day long with an ax without making any noticeable difference.
However, there are ways to hide tree stumps and conceal their appearance, some of which we’re going to discuss in this blog post.
Turn it Into a Bird Bath
One innovative solution is to turn your tree stump into a bird bath. There are actually several ways to accomplish this, one of which is by simply placing a bird bath atop the stump.
Alternatively, you can cut out a small dish-shaped bowl in the top of the stump and fill it with water.
Not only is this a fun way to conceal a tree stump, but it will also attract birds, which is another reason to consider a stump-turned-bird-bath.
Build Pavers Around It
Assuming the tree stump is small, you may be able to conceal it by building brick pavers around it. If it’s no more than six inches tall, creating a perimeter of brick pavers around the stump should conceal it.
You can even arrange the pavers in different ways for greater aesthetics. Feel free to experiment with different paver designs to see what works best for your lawn. With a little ingenuity, you can conceal your tree stump with an arrangement of brick pavers.
Turn it Into a Flowerbed
No, that’s not a typo. Some homeowners have concealed their tree stumps by turning them into flowerbeds. Simply cut a bowl into the top of the stump, fill it with soil, and add your favorite flowers.
For added visual appeal, try growing flowers around the tree stump as well. There’s nothing that compares to the look of colorful flowers. It’s far more appealing than a barren tree stump sitting in the middle of your yard.
Turn it Into a Chair
Another innovative way to hide a tree stump is to turn it into a chair. There are numerous videos on YouTube and elsewhere showing how to do this.
You don’t have to necessarily carve the chair out of the stump. Rather, you can add a seat to the top of it.
Of course, a more permanent solution is to have the tree stump removed by a professional. Using heavy machinery, they’ll grind and pulverize the stump until there’s nothing left.
So, if you’re looking to remove the stump from your yard once and for all, hire a professional tree/stump removal company.
