Why a Beautiful Lawn Relies on Worms
 
“It may be doubted whether there are many other animals which have played so important a part in the history of the world as these lowly organised creatures” Charles Darwin 1881
 
Worms break up thatch
 
Thatch is a dense build-up of dead matter that blocks the flow of water and essential nutrients

Nematodes are parasitic creatures that fed on grass roots causing wilting and bare patches.

Helpful Hint – Nitrogen, Phosphate and Potassium are the nutrients represented by the three numbers on fertiliser bags
 
“Without the work of this humble creature, who knows nothing of the benefits he confers upon mankind, agriculture, as we know it, would be very difficult, if not wholly impossible”  Charles Darwin 1881
 
“Worms are the intestines of the earth” Aristotle (a long time ago)
