using sawed down hemloch tree trunk remaining in a sitting area

Bottom of hemloch tree trunk remaining in the ground is about 1 foot high and seems level. I am trying to create a seating area in that location and would appreciate ideas on how to incorporate this into my landscaping design. I hope to plant two bushes and have a bench and some perennials and annuals there also.
Thanks in advance. Muddymess

Welcome to the forums! Do you have a specific question?? Maybe you could post a picture of your stump and the surrounding area so we can see what you see. Hemlock stumps will deteriorate in a few years, so using it will be temporary. Its not like a black locust or something similar.

If it's a fairly large diameter stump you can hollow out the top with a chain saw and use it as a planter. It will rot eventually but it will take quite a while if it's Eastern hemlock. Where I grew up it was mostly cut for pulpwood and the stumps hung around for a long time.
