Incredible Garden Planter Ideas Using Tree Stump

One of the quickest ways to create an eyesore in your yard is to cut down a tree. Although no one really wants to cut down trees, sometimes it is a necessity.

What you are left with is a tree stump, which can be costly to remove. An alternative to the expense of stump removal is to build a planter. If you like this idea, check out tree stump planter ideas other people have created. Maybe you’ll find something that works in your garden.

You will discover that you can plant things with tree stumps and logs that you may not have thought possible.

For best results, follow the same rules for plants and shrubs that are recommended for planting in any garden. Some plants do best in full sun, while others thrive in shady areas.
