With the record amount of snow we’ve received this winter you can expect one thing in the spring: snow mold. Snow mold is a fungus that appears on your lawn after long periods of snow exposure. There are 2 different types of snow mold, pink and grey. Pink snow mold causes dead spots near the melting snow, with a pink outer ring. This is sometimes confused with red thread. Grey snow mold also causes dead spots near melting snow, but has more of a grey and brown color to it, sometimes mistaken for insect damage.

snow mold is on the right, and has the grey and brown color.
Solution: Getting your last mow in the fall is very important as longer grass is more susceptible to this fungus. Removing all debris off of the lawn for the winter season such as leaves and sticks is also vital, that is why it is important to get that fall clean up done. Avoid piling the snow from the driveways and walkways on the lawn if possible. The best option to rid your lawn of this fungus is a fungicide curative application. In some cases, depending on the severity of the snow mold, it may need more then one application. Not treating this fungus can do serious harm to your grass such as: discoloration, soil compaction, and healthy grass suffocation creating bare spots.
