Stump decorating with flowers is fun. You can use a stump as a flower pot and speed up its rotting process. Soil and flowers increase the rate of decomposition. Drilling large holes in the top and sides of the stumps are an easy way to create cavities where you can plant flowers and decorative grasses. Increasing the area provides more space for bacteria and fungi to grow and speeds up wood-decaying.
Put compost and manure in and around the stump to give food for bacteria and fungi and help destroy the stump quicker. The warm climate affects the speed of this process, destroying wood faster. Suppose time is not an issue and you enjoy yard landscaping with stumps and flowers. In that case, natural decomposition is a practical, environmentally friendly, simple, and beautiful method to improve your outdoor living spaces and remove tree stumps without stump grinding.
How to create a tree stump planter
Wear safety glasses, chip away at the center of the stump with the pointed end of an ax. After the hole gets big, switch to the wide end of the tool. Work your way toward the edges of the stump, leaving a border at least 3-inch (8 cm) wide to create a hole 4 to 8 inches (10 to 20 cm) in depth.
Drill drainage holes in the side of the stump so that they slope toward the ground. Add some free-draining material, like gravel, top it with a mix of 30 percent compost and 70 percent potting soil, and fill the planter with decorative grasses, small plants, or beautiful flowers.
