Five Imaginative Ways to Upcycle a Tree Stump
Whenever a tree is cut down, its stump remains rooted firmly into the ground. A trained arborist can safely remove tree stumps, clearing the way for new garden features to be created.
However, if you have fond memories of a particular tree that was recently felled, you may decide not to have the stump removed entirely. With a little know-how and imagination, you can upcycle a tree stump into a striking character feature that will enrich and enliven your garden space.
Here are five creative ways you can remodel your tree stump and breathe new life into your property:
Introduce New Life with a Flower Planter
Tree stumps can very easily be repurposed into flower planters. Simply carve your flower bed into the stump, add some good quality soil and plant away. In a matter of weeks, your tree stump can be transformed with a burst of plant life and vibrant colour!
Be at One with Nature with a One-of-a-Kind Side Table
With a little careful carving and sanding, your tree stump can become a unique side table that brings the beauty of the great outdoors inside.
Create Your Very Own Fairytale
With just a sprinkle of magic (and a few supplies from your local arts and crafts shop), your tree can be transformed into a tiny house that any garden fairy would be proud to call home. Add a few miniature windows, a pint-sized door and pitched wooden roof and you're good to go. If you're young (or young at heart), this fantastical new feature is sure to spark your imagination!
A Throne Fit for Garden Royalty
Continuing with the fantasy theme, did you know that larger tree stumps can be repurposed into 'thrones'? After cutting the tree to the desired height using a chainsaw, you can then sculpt the stump into the shape of a throne fit for the king or queen of your garden. Now you can preside over your very own garden kingdom ... or simply relax and get lost in a good book.
Your Stepping Stones to Garden Greatness
Tree stumps can be ground down into pieces that can be used to build a whimsical stepping stone path. Surround your path with a plethora of colourful flowers and plants for maximum effect!
