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.
