The Debate: Should You Roll Your Lawn or Aerate Your Lawn

The truth be known… doing both is actually best.

Lawn Rolling

One of the reasons for lawn rolling is to flatten out the humps and bumps in your lawn which makes cutting your grass a much smoother experience.  This not only saves wear and tear on yourself, it causes less wear and tear on your equipment keeping it from breaking down frequently.

Lawn rolling is a must when installing seed or putting down new sod.  Rolling fresh seed and sod ensures proper soil contact and establishment of roots.  If you don’t roll the fresh seed birds and small animals eat it,it may also will wash away with the rain which doesn’t give it the opportunity to germinate evenly. 

Rolling sod ensures proper contact of the root system of your new sod with your soil.  Without this contact your sod could be blotchy and patchy. 


Aerating should be done at least every couple years if you roll your lawn regularly .Aerating helps to relieve compaction of the soil around the root system of your lawn
The holes created by plug core aeration also allow ;water ,fertilizer and oxygen to the roots of your lawn .The roots of your lawn will eventually spread out into the holes created by aeration and form new chutes of grass helping to thicken your lawn .

The cores from Plug Core Aeration should not be raked up but instead allowed to dry up .Once dry run your mower over the plugs to help grind them up andlet them break down naturally.This process provides much needed micro nutrients to your lawn .
