Job Proposals

Sylvester Stump Grinding always give customers a fixed price proposal. You’ll know upfront what the entire job cost will be, with no surprises when the work is done. We do this by visiting a job site and meeting with the property owner before making a proposal. We do not give pricing over the phone or by looking at photos – to do so would not be fair for you or us. In this regard, we are old-fashioned, but that is how we do business.

Here’s what to expect when you reach out to us: We’ll set up a convenient time for meeting at the job site. At the meeting, you’ll describe the scope of work, answer any questions we have, and then we’ll give you a verbal fixed price. Later that same day you’ll receive an email with our written proposal. If you accept our proposal, we’ll notify DigSafe and schedule the job. It’s that simple.

The cost of a job is based on the type, size, and quantity of stumps and how deep into the soil we will have to grind. Additionally, the presence of large roots, rocks or ledge, structures, and buried utilities can influence the job cost.

Grinding Debris

Stump grinding debris is a mixture of wood and soil. This makes a wonderful mulch for controlling weed and grass growth in gardens, planters and walkways, etc.  All debris will be consolidated and left in the area of each stump that is ground.  We do not remove grinding debris from worksites.

When we grind near structures and vehicles, machine-mounted debris curtains and portable containment is used to prevent damage to your property.
