Nora if the stumps are too short to rock as verdun suggested try this way.....Dig about a foot back from the stump in a circle. Any roots you hit that are not too big chop with a saw or a good pair of loppers. Keep going round and round doing this until you can just lift the stump out. Then go back to getting each cut root out. I have managed to get huge stumps out this way much to the surprise of many a male customer who had given up lol! 

Talkback: Aphids

Mmmmm. Not so sure of using rhubarb leaves this way. Just because they are natural doesn't mean they are safe. They contain oxalic acid. You would have to eat a LOT of leaves for it to kill you but making a decoction of them is making the poison more concentrated. Not surprised it kills the aphids and probably anything else good or bad that lands where you have sprayed. Personally I would not like to eat anything sprayed with this.

Looks like overwatering to me. I suggest you do like Kef said pull it out and look at roots.

The easiest way to assure no ants in pots is to put a piece of landscape fabric in the bottom over drainage holes. Water can get out but bugs can't get in.

All of these alternative lawn plants will not survive heavy traffic. If to be walked on occasionally then you could try some of the low growing thymes.

Looks like a water beetle of some sort. Does she have a pond?

Shame you're not nearer Clueless. Could pass it on to one of my less well off customers.

Probably wrong but do you grow Solomons seal? The white bits on the right hand root look like it.
