Yes, you gotta believe spring time is finally only a few weeks away. It’s been a long and cold winter with near record snowfalls which has likely done some damage to your lawn and garden. The snow and ice clearly has damaged many trees, snapped tree limbs, damaged shrubs and likely caused what is called snow mold. Snow mold generally occurs when snow covered grass does not receive enough oxygen. Snow mold is a fungal disease that appears in early spring once the snow has melted away. There are two types of snow mold grey and pink. It looks like circular patches (3″-12″) of either dead or matted grass pink or gray in color. There are several common causes for snow mold: a poorly timed late fall fertilizer application which caused growth as your grass naturally wanted to go dormant, under fallen leaves that should have been removed from your lawn, and snow covering ground for an extended time which was not completely frozen. The easiest way to treat snow mold is rake the area and do some overseeding. One other condition may trigger the snow mold and that is grass which was left too high in the fall season. We were on many lawns this past fall while we were doing leaf cleanups where the homeowner had stopped their lawn service way too early in the season.
