    march is finally here!! We are slowly approaching lawn rolling season. Generally rolling is a good months worth of work before cutting. Not alot of people roll, and it's very hard to predict what areas to target for more business. Any others roll in the spring? How popular is it in other areas?

    Try the search feature. This was brought up a month or so ago. Lawn rolling is not a recommended practice anymore.

    and damage the lawn...

    reason to roll a lawn..... damage form tires, moles, construction... thats it..

    especially if the soil is clay like your, and drought stricken, like yours ..... if you do it, then you have to aeriate...

    we explain to customers why its bad for the lawn, old thinking, and no one does it that way any more......
