Benefits of controlling lawn worm casts

Casts on LawnIt's going to be a bit of a wet and windy week.  The days when you can get out and mow your lawn are reducing because you need to assess the physical ground conditions for the mower ahead of getting it out of the shed.

When the soil water to soil air water changes in favour of more water in the soil, the Earthworms get a bit more active in the upper reaches of the soil, placing their soil casts on the surface of the lawn making ground conditions harder for the lawn owner.

For over 20 years, there were no lawn worm cast deterrents or suppressants available to domestic lawn owners. Until The Team at The Lawn Company developed the product CastClear for the retail market.

There are now at least 156 garden retails Stockists of CastClear spread around the UK.

The benefits of controlling worm casts on lawn worm casts are:

  1. Lawn users can use the lawn longer into the autumn and winter
  2. There will not be a hige volume of soil from the worm casts on the surface
  3. The kitchen floor stays cleaner keeping Mum happy
  4. The grass cover and density will be protected from being smeared in squashed worm casts
  5. The casts will not form rich seed bed for moss and weeds
  6. The surface off the lawn will be firmer under foot as the worms will not be burrowing just under the surface but deeper below the CastClear barrier
  7. You will be able to mow the lawn later into the growing season as the surface of the lawn will not be muddy
  8. You will have more grass in the spring time if you control the worm casts now
