Compacted soil.

Compacting the high points is what we want, at least if it causes the low
points to be filled in. Unfortunately, rolling has not helped my lawn.
I rented a standard 24" wide by about 15" in diameter roller and filled it
with water. This was towed around behind my tractor for several passes.

Maybe have a pro come in with a 800 pound roller if you want to compact the
bumps. But it wont fill in the low spots. Also 2 feet is a small ass roller,
why the hell would you need to pull it behind a tractor!
