Stump grinding debris

I just had a few stumps ground down in my front yard and I am looking for ideas on getting rid of the dirt/wood piles.

i am putting in a landscaped area in the front yard and I was told that I could just spread the piles in the landscaped area. I ahve also been told it needs to sit for 6 month or so before I do something like this.

Any ideas?

Stump grinding debris

Try using the 'search' function on the forum. This topic is well (and as recently as this week) covered and discussed.


If I could only remember to THINK about what I was doing before I did it.

Stump grinding debris

Don't be in a hurry to plant grass on the site that stump was ground out. I lost a large oak tree about twelve years ago; we made the mistake of putting black dirt and planting grass the next summer. The summer after that we had a large dip in our yard. It didn't get repaired until we put an addition on the back of the house and the skid loader destroyed a nice path from the front yard to the back.

Yes this was discussed within the last week or so; I believe that had to do with using the sawdust/wood-chips for mulch.
