After the stump has been found and carved, it can then be used for a number of different uses. Petrified wood stumps have found use as the base of fountains or as small fish ponds, making for some interesting lawn ornaments. Both kinds usually end up as wooden planters in a variety of surroundings, ranging from gardens to driveways, wherever their owners wish to have an additional natural touch.

The obvious use of these stumps is as garden decorations, with perennials growing out of the tops of them, and usually placed to look somewhat natural. The gardener is advised to treat them as normal planters, but to allow for natural drainage, especially if the stump is made of aged wood rather than stone. The bottom third should be filled with sand to both weigh it down and allow for drainage, while the remainder should be filled with potting soil. This will allow any plants inside to grow healthy and be easily cared for.
