If you have a tree stump in your backyard and you seem to not know what to do with it, here’s a cool project for you. Having a tree stump removed is a huge task and is often expensive. Instead of having it removed completely, you can turn into a beautiful planter.

One of the things that you can do is to plant colourful flowers in them and you’ll have beautiful blooms in no time. Another option would be to plant succulents in them. Or, to create a focal point in your garden, you can have moss grow in them naturally.
