Benefits of Rolling Your Lawn My grandfather used to tell me that he needed to get out his turf roller every spring and run it over his back yard lawn ‘to prevent the spirits underneath from rising up through the ground’. While that may not have been strictly accurate, it ended up being beneficial for his lawn anyway, because using that heavy duty ground roller always helped to identify any rough spots or areas that required re-seeding.
Using a heavy duty ground roller on your lawn or field is extremely beneficial. From golf courses, to grass airstrips, rolling your grass makes a huge difference in your field’s overall health. If you own a property with a large grass field or lawn, such as a large estate, golf course, or sports complex, you will love the benefits of using a turf roller from TurfTime Equipment.
There are some definite benefits to rolling your lawn regularly, even if you don’t do it every single springtime. It very often happens that irregularities develop in the height of your lawn, and if these aren’t smoothed out in the spring when the ground is still moist and pliable, those irregularities can be locked in for the entire summer and fall, as the ground dries and hardens into place.
Whether you have a small lawn to roll or a very large one, you’ll be able to find the perfect heavy duty lawn roller at Turftime Equipment. When you choose one of the models from the AR-Series of rollers, you’ll have the advantage of rolling out anywhere from a 60″ rolling width, up to a full 144″, which will get the job done faster and more smoothly. Here are some of the other advantages to be gained by periodically rolling your lawn:
You probably won’t need to suppress any spooky spirits residing in your back yard, or your front yard for that matter, but there can definitely be some changes which take place over winter that need to be addressed in your lawn. A lawn roller from Turftime Equipment will help you accomplish what needs to be done in order to restore a smooth lawn surface around your home. If your lawn is in need of re-seeding, whether it’s a general re-seeding or one which addresses a specific area of your lawn, your lawn roller will help encourage faster germination and quicker-growing grass over the affected area.
If you need to apply fresh sod over a damaged area of your lawn, that too will take much more quickly if you run your turf roller over it a couple times, so as to eliminate air pockets beneath the sod, and to establish immediate contact between the sod and the ground below it. If all you need to do is smooth out some bumps which have developed in your lawn over the winter season, there’s no better time to do that than the spring time, and there’s no better piece of equipment to accomplish it with than a Turftime Equipment heavy duty ground roller.
