Leaf clear up..
Today, I would like to explain one of the reasons why clearing up leaves off the lawn is important.
One of these reasons in this garden below is:
Not their beneficial activity of aerating the soil, but the detrimental effect of their casts on the surface of your lawn.
There are about 27 species of worm in the UK but only three create worm casts at the surface of your lawn
Earthworm cast is made up of soil and worm’s digestive system secretion. Final product is very slimy and if left on the lawn, can later be smeared across the lawn from mowing or even walking on the lawn. Earthworm casts also create bumps in the turf and can quite often be unsightly.
The vast amount of earthworm casts can quickly turn your lawn into a patch of mud.
Leaves do attract worms to the surface. Worms pull leaves into their burrows to feed on these later.
One simple thing you can do to discourage worms from coming to the surface is to clear autumn leaves immediately.

That will limit the amount of casts on your lawn .
Other methods include:
- Use of an acidifier
- Spraying with a fungicide like: carbendazim
No rest for the wicked! but no complaints really..

Here's a testimonial received from the client.
This weekend's weather has been on my side and I took advantage of it without hesitation.
Two days work doing garden tidy up in a terraced house in central Reading has been completed today.
Unfortunately due to time of year I couldn't really do much about the lawn.
Too late for turfing, too late for seeding too.
I am very pleased the way that very much overgrown conifer turned out.
Customer's very happy !
