    I was wondering if anyone knew where I could get a push roller to roll down sod.

    Hi Greenngrow,

    Here are two sites I found for drum rollers.

    If you have a Northern Hydraulics Tools store near you, they have them, they also have a web site.

    Ok, to everyone answering. I have never rolled one sod job I have done. Never ever had any problems. What does it really accomplish? :cool:

    On sod I do it strictly for aesthetics. It looks a little better after being rolled, though I know watering it settles it down anyway. I use mine mainly for packing when putting down a base for walkways and when leveling.

    Everyone who does landscaping should have an A.M. Leonard catalog. You can see their catalog online or request a printed catalog from their website:


    (they have ALMOST everything)

    I have only done a few small sod jobs and have not used a roller. Supposedly it presses the sod down into the soil so it all makes good contact. I figured I was accomplishing this by just walking on it, but on a larger job I would probably use a roller if I had one.
