Do you have an awful looking stump on your lawn or garden that you want to remove? Well, a better solution to get rid of it is by calling a stump grinding Karalee specialist. The question is, can you do it on your own? A lot of homeowners think that they can probably get rid of the stump by themselves, but consider this first:
Get rid of the stump yourself?
If you do decide to remove the stump on your own, you will have to invest in buying the right equipment and work on it yourself. You need all your strength in shovelling, sawing, drilling and so on just to get you started. You will also need a gas-powered stump grinder that may cost you a couple of thousands of dollars. You could also rent that mostly cost around $80 to around $200 a day depending on the size of what you are renting.
If this is your first time on this, you will also need a couple of hours just to familiarize yourself with the operation of the grinder. And a couple more hours experimenting on the task, if you are doing it right. This may also take you more hours than what you have expected as you could experience a couple of bumps along the way. And while, after a long day or a couple of long days of work, you may still be able to finish the job but the end result may not have been what you think of.
Get rid of the stump professionally?
If you do hire a professional to do the stump grinding, you can actually save more of your energy and time as they have all the equipment you need. Tree stump removal will mostly cost depending on the diameter. For instance, a tree with a 500mm diameter could cost you around $100 while a one-meter diameter tree could cost around $150 to $170.
With the price of a professional is more practical and time-saving than you doing it, it is no wonder more and more homeowners are just calling a stump removal service to do this hard work instead of them doing it.
