Lawn rolling fits into a spring lawn maintenance schedule when trying to remove bumps in your lawn. Having an even surface is nicer to walk on and ensures a safer and easier mowing job.
Spring is the better time to do a rolling application because the turf usually has more moisture from the frost coming out of the ground and from the spring rains.
It should also be part of your preparation before laying new sod. It allows for a nice even starting surface, just like the seeding preparation, which prevents dips in the lawn later on.
Rolling the newly laid sod will ensure that it's made a good contact between the soil and the new turf, which is key for new root development.
When Seeding Your Lawn
It should be part of your preparation work before seeding a new lawn, as it gives you the opportunity to start on a nice level surface before the seed goes down.
Jim always rolls over the grass seed once it's been put down, which helps settle the seed and place it in the soil without burying it too deep.
Animals will often tunnel or dig up a lawn when searching for pests, like white grubs, as a food source. They can make an awful mess of a perfectly good lawn in no time, leaving you with a lawn repair job to get things back in order.
The damage will need to be repaired by placing the rolled back turf into place, or by top dressing and reseeding, and finally, in both cases, gone over with the lawn roller.
The is to work on ground with just the right
amount of moisture. If the ground is too wet, you'll have a soil
compaction problem. On the other hand, working on a lawn that's too dry
will almost be a waste of time with the lawn roller, as the ground will
not be flattened or repositioned as needed.
Soil compaction from rolling on a newly seeded lawn will likely deprive the seeds and seedlings from needed water and oxygen to grow properly.
