I've been away a while.. hope all is fine with everyone and your garden is growing
On to business, we recently moved from cow country to the OC. Our new house is a cute split level built in 1965. We have a lot more land but the previous owners were not into landscaping or gardening at all. I have two sad roses
, two citrus trees
that I didn't even notice because the weeds
were surrounding them, two good size lawns and a ton of groundcover. They really liked candy apple ground cover. :p We also had a bunch of ugly trees
, one being a yucca, that we had removed. I'm not one for removing trees
but these really had to go. One was dying and the others were just awful. Anyway, the yucca was on top of our little slope/hill in the front yard. The tree
guys couldn't grind the stump because its on the hill so they cut down as far as it would go. Now I have a huge (probably at least 2 feet across) ugly stump right where I was going to start my new terraces. How do I make this stump look better? Any ideas? My hubby wants to take an axe and see if he can get more of it out. The tree
guy suggested acid to destroy it.
That sounds like it wouldn't be quite so eco- friendly and I'm not so hip on the idea. Any more organic suggestions?
