  • Mow pulling roller

    What are your thoughts on pulling a lawn roller while you mow?? I was out shopping for a new mower today and one of my local dealers was pushing the advantages. His point was smoothing the lawn (comfort). My concern was what would this do as far as compacting soil.

    Your thoughts??

    I use it as an extra service. It should be done but not everytime you mow or your gonna be getting alot of dead grass and doing alot of aeration.

    im not a pro on this but i know enough about it to know that it will choke the grass

      Depends on the soil and location, overall a bad idea. We roll lawns in the spring when they are soft to flatten them then apply Aerify

        Rollers are a good idea for new lawn installation. However, I think it would be overkill and damaging for lawns to provide rolling as a regular service.

          I can see the advantage of a smoother lawn. “Easier on the tractor – Appearance” But I agree it shouldn’t be done many times. Maybe that was what the dealer was implying.

          I think I will offer as an extra service, add a little to the normal mow rate. Sounds like a plan.
