Although worms are beneficial for the garden, they can be a real problem in the lawn, producing surface worm casts. If the casts are left they may be squashed flat with your mower or underfoot creating an uneven surface, smothering the grass and providing a seedbed for weeds to grow in.

Casting worms do not like acidic soils, so when a soil acidifier is applied to the lawn they will burrow deeper into the soil without coming to any harm whatsoever — reducing casts on the surface.

Greenacres Direct produce two products to increase acidity and suppress casting worm activity; SulphurLawn Chips & SulphurLawn Spray-on

Prevention is always better than a cure and we recommend that an application of either product is made before casts become a problem. An acidic soil will also ensure a healthy lawn as plant nutrients are made more readily available, resulting in better vibrancy and growth.
