Hints & Tips
This is the time of year when rolling the lawn when the turf is damp can make all the difference to its appearance come the Spring when the mower makes its first cut.
And if you have a large lawn you will need a roller that you can tow behind your lawn tractor.
Regular rolling isn’t only for bowling greens and cricket pitches and we have a selection of tow behind models which will prove a good investment for years to come.
