    Advice on using a rotavator and roller


    I have a light-duty garden rotavator which I am planning to put to use on my lawn sometime in the spring, maybe February or March, depending on what the weather is like. I’m also thinking of buying a lawn roller at some stage. Should I wait a certain period of time between using a rotavator and lawn roller in my garden? Also, should I consider using a roller before rotavating instead?

    "The ground may be to hard for a lite duty rotavator so clearing weed and hand digging it first may be the way , then rotavator and level with rake let settle then you can roll it but don’t compact it to much. Then you can rake again and turf or seed ."

    "Best time for any work in the garden is when it warms up a bit. Using machinery on soaking ground will cause it to sink."
