I think it only works if used in conjunction with a nuclear density test. :lol:


I kid - I know they sometimes roll greens to firm/smooth/speed up the playing surface, but I think with that comes the risk of over-compaction and water infiltration issues. I'll probably stick to topdressing.

Yeah this is where you need to know your soil. Mine gets frost heaves. When they put in the septic the heavy machinery didn't over compact it in any way. Our location rarely floods. If I find out someone I know has one of these I might do it..

hmmm - glad I came across this...in the middle of my reno and added a thick layer of new topsoil...almost 2 inches in some spots...I'm using a Brinly hand roller but its not heavy enough for the job...

Might have to call some paving contractors in my area to see if they can do this for me...
