worms come up from my lawn every fall and spring. They stick to the walk ways and cement and die.

Worms need oxygen so when the soil is saturated with water, either from a sprinkler or from rainfall, the worms surface for air. If you have lots of worms surfacing it indicates your soil is remaining too wet instead of draining well. You can rent a core aerator to aerate your lawn. It will drain faster after being aerated and you won't see quite so many worms coming up for air.
