The 7 Best Garden Rollers – Guide

A garden roller is suitable not only for leveling lawns, but also for incorporating lawn seeds. For this reason, it is indispensable when laying out a lawn.

What you can do with a garden roller, what weight is necessary or which material is the best, you can find out in our checklist. You can find the right garden roller for your garden in our product recommendations.

Checklist For Garden Rollers

Possible Uses
  • With a garden roller you can level and compact a soil area in the garden or press seeds into the soil.
  • The garden tool is indispensable for laying out a lawn.
  • The roller also performs well when laying sod. The turf strips bond better with the soil due to the pressure.
  • In the already existing lawn, bulges caused by voles can be leveled.
  • In addition, strips can be rolled into a lawn.
  • Freshly dug soil is made tread-resistant by rolling.
Variants
  • Concrete garden rollers are the heaviest.
  • They can weigh up to 150 kg and are therefore rarely used in the private sector.
  • A roller that can be filled with water or sand through an opening is recommended for the garden.
  • It is also easy to empty.
  • You can easily adjust the weight of the drum to the soil conditions and your strength.
  • Themost durable garden rollers are made of metal. This can be stainless steel.
  • Mostly, however, powder-coated steel is used, which is also easy to maintain.
  • A paint finish protects against rusting.
Handling
  • An average hand roller has a width of 60 cm and a diameter of up to 35 cm and weighs 12 to 15 kg empty.
  • With a water filling, it should be possible to achieve a final weight of at least 60 kg. This is sufficient for leveling an area.
  • With a sand filling , a higher weight of up to 120 kg is possible.
  • The garden tool must provide good power transmission. This is the case if the roller has a sturdy steel frame, the linkage is height adjustable and the handles are ergonomically shaped.
  • A dirt scraper prevents soil from sticking to the roller and ensures an even result.
  • If an aerator set is included, which are metal rings with spikes, you can also aerate the lawn with the roller.
