Long term method of lawn leveling

Hi all,

First post, and this one is about my own lawn. I have a 2.25 acre lawn that was a farmyard and is in OK condition, but bumpy. Not terrible, but not smooth either. I was wondering if some sort of a multi-year program of plugging and rolling might help me smooth this thing out. I would use top-dressing, but too much soil would be needed, and due to the nature of the lawn, it wouldn't be worth that much. I was kind of thinking of plugging it multiple times per year.. would that eventually help level it out? It is probably heavily compaced as well. Any ideas would be great, plus any thoughts on my idea here. If it would work, how often should I plug it? Should I roll in between?

Thanks,

Darren
