Moldy Turf?

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.

mold activity.

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.
