Is there an easy way to control the roots of Arecas Palms?

I have eight clusters of this palm in my back yard. Two of them are getting very close to the swimming pool and spa.

Here is one I just cut off half the stems (the fence is six feet tall for reference).

Is there a way to clean up the root system? It's basically a hump of half rotted mess. I have another one three times bigger then this one with the root being a mount 4 feet tall and 8 feet wide.

Do I need a stump grinder? Trying to decide do I keep cutting it back constantly, or get rid of it totally.
