Q.Clay Soil Lawn, Best Type of Worm

Anonymous added on April 22, 2011 | Answered

I live in Charlotte, NC. and the soil is heavy clay. I have a 1200 sq. ft. front lawn and a 3000 sq. ft. rear lawn. I want to know how many worms, and what type of worm, I should buy to help with aeration and soil conditioning. I have read that worms for the lawn become a nightmare to control, and I will wind up with a problem eventually, due to castings making the lawn slippery and muddy.

Earthworms introduced into the soil will help aerate and add more nutrients to your lawn. These articles will help as well: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/how-to-improve-clay-soil.htm
