The prolonged snow cover this winter is leading to some snow mold development. There are several
types of snow molds, molds tend to occur where there is a long
time-period of snow cover, especially where turf is
matted down and when the turf was very lush at the time of the initial snow.
What to do? In a home lawn/landscape situation the best approach is to rake through the area to
loosen up the matting and promote drying. Next year, make sure to mow the area into the fall to
prevent the dense matting that predisposes a site to snow molds.
