In this way, should I use a roller on my lawn?
Use a lightweight roller when you roll out a grass lawn. A heavy roller will compact the soil and only light weight is needed to accomplish the task anyway. The best time when to roll the lawn is in the spring. Roll your lawn in the spring when grass is just coming out of dormancy and the roots are in active growth.
how do you fix a bumpy lawn? Apply scoops of fresh topsoil to low areas of the lawn using a shovel. Keep the new dirt no more than 1/2 inch thick so the existing grass can grow through it. If it's too deep, the dirt will kill the existing grass. Spread the dirt slightly with the rake if the dirt gets too deep.
Beside above, how well do yard rollers work?
Rolling the lawn destroys the aggregation and compacts the soil. Compacted soil contains less air and less water, making it much more difficult for roots to grow. Grass grows better without rolling.
What is the point of a lawn roller?
Rolling your Lawn So, rolling is to firm the surface; meaning the top 1” to 2” of soil. A light roller, half filled water roller or a pedestrian lawn mower roller can be used to firm top dressing and roll after seeding. Generally you would not need anything heavier unless you have an ornamental or croquet lawn.
