Craft Bird Baths With the Stump
A birdbath is an artificial puddle or small shallow pond, created with a water-filled basin, in which birds may drink, bathe, and cool themselves.
One thing you are sure to never miss in your yard, regardless of where you live are birds.
Birds are particularly helpful to gardeners and birdbaths is a sure way of keeping these gems coming back.
Bird bath designs are many, varying from the very basic pools on the surface of the stump to the more intricate waterfall forms.
Always make sure you keep the birdbaths full with clean water to stay ahead of any ailments either from the birds or otherwise.
Recycled Stump pathway pavers
Some find stumps unsightly, while others find them a visual feature. It depends on how well the stump blends into the landscape.
You need to take several items into account to make your decision: the location of the pathway and whether stump pavers can be integrated into your design; the height of the stump (if it is too low, it is not useful and more of a hazard), and the type of tree and appearance as some tree stumps are better looking than others.
Depending on the location of the pavers, they can be a tripping hazard or get in the way of lawn mowers.Other stumps can decay and attract wood- insects that you don’t want near your house.
To protect the pavers coat with a layer of deck seal, then add a second coat of high gloss exterior clear.
Make the Stump a Planter
Creating planters from stumps is not only a good way to spruce up your landscape but offers other benefits too. For example, as the wood decays, it will help nourish plants with additional nutrients.
Annual flowers are the easiest to plant, but there are many other types you can choose too, depending on your needs and personal preferences.
Annuals with shallow roots don’t need much depth, and probably nothing needs more than 6 inches of depth if you use a good growing medium
Hollow stump planter is the most common method, where you can simply plant directly into the stump itself.You can even situate a container into the hollowed-out stump instead and just set your plants in that.
Tree Stump Chair
With thicker stumps at your disposal consider making a chair, this is especially useful when you cut down old trees in fall. The remaining stumps can be unsightly in your landscape.
Before attempting to shape a stump with a grinding wheel, make sure you feel comfortable using this tool and know how to use it safely.
You can equally choose to use tree stumps that are uprooted, this option gives more versatility since you can choose to use the stump chair indoor or in patios.
However honing these skills require some patience and ample time to properly craft better designs. After hauling home a heavy stump, you have to dry it for weeks and then strip its bark, patch holes and maybe treat the stump. This process often run into weeks, hell even months.
Altenativel you can purchase one from handcraft dealers either online or from one of the brick and mortar stores.
