How the Roller Garden Can Keep Things Rolling Along

The life cycle of any garden calls for a series of planned events: the sprouting of planted seeds, the growth of the plants that form from those seeds, and then the death of the same plant. However, certain outside forces can prevent the forward movement of that life cycle. Moles, for instance, can keep plant growth from proceeding the way it is supposed to.

However, the availability of a tool known by the term “garden lawn roller” can help to keep things “rolling along.” For example, that rolling device can help to tap down the planted seeds. It manages to apply just the right amount of pressure to the soil.

In addition, a garden roller can be used to chase away any unwanted mole. Now you do not need to poison the pest. Simply fill your chosen rolling “attacker” with one part Castor oil and eighty  parts of water. Then apply that mole chasing solution to the affected area.

This solution works well in areas where the number of pets exceeds the number of garden rollers. This solution can not kill any animal, although it can drive moles out of a section of your property. It could displease a pet, but if you also feed and care for that same animal, then its displeasure should soon be erased.

Now if this trick inspires you to buy a garden hose roller, then you should know what to look for. Check for the a device that is easy to fill. Search for a piece that will not dent or rust. That way you are sure to “get your money’s worth” from your lawn care and gardening tool.

As word of your mole fighting ways spreads, and as neighbors witness the flowering of your garden plants, they are apt to talk among themselves about your “green” thumb and the roller garden it has created.
