CastClear being sold at top 100 Garden Centres

CastClear from The Lawn CompanyCastClear, the new lawn worm cast suppressant is being sold on the shelves of some of the top 100 retail garden centres.

Horticulture Week Magazine and Online has recently published the top 100 garden centres based on turnover with Longacres Garden Centre in Bagshot, Surrey coming top with annual sales of £16M and Scotsdales Garden Centre in Cambridge coming a close second with annual sales of £14.87M.  Both are stockists of CastClear from The Lawn Company as are eight others in the top 20 Garden Centres.

CastClear is a NEW organic and unique combination of nutrient materials that have been clearly shown to reduce worm-cast levels on lawns large and small. 

It is unique in using a surfactant system that moves the nutrient into the upper soil structure and fixes it there providing good persistence of deterrent effect until breaking down to natural nutrients absorbed by plant roots.

As the soil air to water ratio changes in the more traditional autumn months, you will notice an increase in worm cast activity. The wetter the autumn or winter, the greater the worm activity will be. The root zone of the lawn will become spongy as the worms undermine the upper surface and mowing will become difficult, especially with a cylinder mower. The use of the lawn will diminish as a result of the difficult surface conditions.

It is not the activity of the worms naturally aerating the soil beneath the grass surface, but the detrimental effect of their casts that cause the problems. The soil making up the casts is very slimy as it consists of soil and the natural secretions from the worm’s digestive system. Left on the surface of the lawn, the casts will be smeared across the grass through the actions of mowing and walking on the lawn.

The end result is that worms are capable of pushing up an incredible volume of soil by way of their casts so it does not take long for the surface of the lawn to become really muddy and slippery. Over time the worm casts smear the grasses and you end up with no lawn, muddy platform shoes, muddy paw prints from the dog coming back into the kitchen and muddy children. 

An application of CastClear will greatly prolong the use of the lawn in the autumn to spring months and protect the existing surface of the lawn so that you might end up with grass cover in the spring.  The overall micro levels of the lawn will instantly be improved.

If you are the Buyer of one of the top 100 Garden Centres and you are not currently, email The Lawn Company Team or visit the CastClear web site for stockist opportunities.  IF you are a lawn owner and want to buy some, visit the CastClear stockist page or better still ask your local Garden Centre to stock it!
