Whether or not you have recently had a tree removed or it has fallen down, you may be stuck with an unsightly tree stump. These can become a real blemish to your landscape. But here are a few fun ideas that can actually put that stump to good use.

What Can You Do With Your Tree Stumps?

Wherever your trees have fallen you may be able to make something new. If you can extract the insides of the stump, you can turn the remaining stump into a home for new plants. It’s as easy as filling in the empty space with soil or sand, and planting some seeds for them to grow.

Depending on the size of the stump or the type of tree, you can use this new planter to grow some shallow-root plants. Some of these include:

Herbs (Sage, Thyme, Lavender)
Small Shrubs
Vegetables (Lettuce, Spinach, Kale)

Other fun ideas

If you’re feeling a little crafty, you can try to make your stump into a nice outdoor seating area. These can add a nice natural look to your outdoor living space and can be a useful table for you to set your drinks on during your next pool party. Look at some of these other fun ideas!
