Solving Lawn Soil Casts
'My lawns are covered in worm soil casts, too damp to brush with a besom. I have tried to remove them with a trowel and given up.
The lawn now looks worse. My lawn care contractor will treat them with chemicals – but should I allow this?'

For the few weeks in autumn and spring when worms “come up for air”, you might find their casts easier to disperse on dry days. I use a plastic lawn rake upside (flat side) down, using a circular motion that reduces casts to smaller lumps or even fine powder. There is a sulphur-based product called CastClear, from garden centres.
