Don't ever roll. Dethatch and then aerate. Aerate only with a plug type. The spike kind just make the ground harder. Rolling just makes the ground harder. Dethatch is good. Aerate with a plugger and then mulch and overseed. Early spring, or when it's dry enough, and sometime in September.

I only do a true dethatch when the thatch is so thick it is killing the lawn. If I do dethach, I will always aerate at the same time.Lawn rolling is often useful during the installation process, but that is pretty much the only time it is useful.
