What to do with a tree stump, besides remove it? - I have a bear ground level tree stump that I would like to do something with other than grind it down. I am worried about using chemicals to kill it because it could damage other trees/plants in the area. Any thoughts?

Stump grind it. Rent (or hire) a stump grinding unit to abrade the stump to below ground level, then -re-grade, add new soil, partially compact and replant. Watch for suckers or new tree shoots and trim these off right way as needed for the first two years if a larger tree and that should kill it. No chemicals - never, never!

You can in many instances. Try to allow for a 3/4" gap to allow for mortar, the tile and any change in pitch to make level...

Thank you , A good alternative to boxwood hedge, especially if blight is evident. I wish it was grown much more in the Uk or for the Uk landscape industry as an alternative.

That is common thyme. It should do well in New Mexico with ample irrigation...

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Erin Lang Norris added this to Your Yard: Are You Ready to Lose the Lawn?
Groundcover. This gorgeous bed of creeping thyme may look delicate, but thyme is actually quite tough and can do just fine in low-traffic areas of the yard. Bonus: Thyme leaves are quite fragrant and smell beautiful when walked upon.
