I agree with Tetley - you don't like them, they don't look good so get rid!!!
You may not need to grind the stumps out - if you cut them down but leave a 4 ft trunk you can use as a lever, as the ground softens in the winter you should be able to 'rock' them out - they're quite shallow rooted.
That'll save you money to put towards a fence and new shrubs
