Why stone removal service for the lawn?

So why should you remove the stone lawn? You probably know the answer to that question. Because you will probably be reminded of protruding stones every time you mow your garden with your motor lawnmower. It sometimes causes the motor lawnmower to break without the blade slamming against the rock and the blade getting a notch or two.

However, you have a robotic lawnmower, and it runs on a protruding rock, stump, or root, which usually leads to the cutting motor breaking. It is something that all manufacturers have disclaimed and is therefore not covered by the warranty. For that reason, you either want to restrict with the robotic lawnmower’s loop cable, protruding rocks, stumps, and roots or get rid of them.

A delimited stone, stump, or root means that there is uncut grass left around the obstacle, which must then be trimmed away. Unlike if it were to be removed, which means that the robotic lawnmower can walk unhindered across the lawn. Consequently, you can take a more significant advantage of the robotic lawnmower’s work and avoid extra gardening.

Remove stone from lawn yourself

To crack and split stone, you need the right tools. Below we list the tools you need, followed by a brief description of the working method. If you do not have all the tools and intend to buy new or rent, we would advise you against it. As previously mentioned, 

Tools for stone wedging

It will help if you have a powerful hammer drill of about 1,500 W, preferably with a vibration damper to drill in stone. You can use a hammer drill with lower power, but it only means that it takes much longer to drill and a significant strain on the arms and shoulders. If you are worried about your body, you should, for that reason, make sure you get a powerful machine or you rent it.

The stone drills are a consumable item and last for 4-8 holes, depending on the drill and the stone’s material. Then it will be best if you have stone wedges, grease, sledgehammer, crowbar, and skewers to succeed with stone cracking.

Procedure for stone removal service

Below is a brief description of how to crack a stone with stone wedges. You can find a more detailed job description of using crack wedges on Gnejs Granit’s website.

- Drill holes in the stone

Start by making holes in the stone with the hammer drill for the stone wedges.

Expect a drill to last for about six holes.

- Insert the stone wedges

If you have a large enough hole, just put the stone wedges in the gap. Make sure that the wedge is in the same direction as the first wedge. It causes the stone crack to end up in the same order on the remaining wedges.

- Crack the stone with the sledgehammer

Cracking the stones is easier than you think. If the stone wedges are as they should be, the stone will break when it is wedged into the rock. Remove the stone crusher as you crack further.

- Fill again, and even out with a leveling rake

Finally, fill the pit with lawn soil and level the lawn (in Swedish) using a leveling rake.

Get our stone removal service to get rid of rocks on the lawn

Customers who hire us for stone cracking do so in connection with installing robotic lawnmowers for them. It is because rocks and stumps are an obstacle for the robot, and it cannot then walk completely unhindered across the lawn.

As previously mentioned, protruding rocks and roots can cause costly damage to the robotic lawnmower’s cutting motors. For this reason, we recommend our customers get rid of rocks, stumps, and protruding roots. TrädgårdSmart provides stone removal service when making the installation for robotic lawnmowers.

Vad säger våra kunder om vår stenkilning?

"I contacted TrädgårdsSmart to renovate my lawn. In the garden, there are peaks of four large stones that you must remove before the renovation. Robert at TrädgårdsSmart was here and looked at these stones and said that he could crack them away, so they end up. At the agreed time, Robert shows up for stone removal service with the right equipment and drills holes to break the stones with stone wedges. I can only state that I am pleased with the contact and communication with Robert and, of course, that the stones will not stick up on the lawn. "The next step is for TrädgårdsSmart to renovate the lawn."

Robert

Robert är ägare och grundare av TrädgårdSmart i Sverige. Du finner mig och min familj i Bälinge som är en förort till Uppsala. Här bor vi en villa med en trädgård på ca 400 kvm, och här har vi en robotgräsklippare som sköter gräsklippningen. Gräsmattan gödslas 4 gånger per år och jag försöker stödså den lika ofta med nytt gräs. Det för att ständigt föryngra gräsmattan, och det har lett till en tät och fin gräsmatta fri från ogräs.
