Ok, so I just put down an pre-emergent on my lawn today and I was thinking about rolling my lawn come Monday if the rain holds off, any problems with this? My brother in law seemed to think so but I would no see why. Any thoughts would be helpful. Thanks

Rolling a lawn means compaction. If your aerating every fall to open up the lawn and relieve compaction, you would only roll it if it was very rough terrain. i think the experts would tell you compaction stunts root growth or may cause un wanted stress.
