Stump grinding - wood chips all over backyard
We just had a pretty large Douglas Fir cut down. Its giant branches were starting to fall off and posed some pretty big safety risks. Anyway, the tree cutting company I hired ground the stump and proceeded to leave a giant mound of wood chips in my backyard. They said not to worry about it and that when it rains, the wood chips would just sink into the ground. Is this normal practice or are they just being lazy asses? I was planning to grow grass over top of where the used to be, but now it would take weeks before these wood chips supposedly “sink in”. The surrounding area where there used to be grass is also filled with wood chips...isn’t this going to suffocate those parts of my lawn?
