Should I roll my lawn?
By: Laurie Broccolo

It seems like a great idea to smooth out the bumps and valleys but it may damage your healthy turf. In Rochester we have many areas with clay soil composition. Rolling clay soils will cause compaction and decrease the turf’s ability to absorb water and air. Most soil and grass in the Rochester area can be raked to flatten the area without the worry of weakening the turf by rolling.
