Just because the snow is covering your lawn does not mean that you should ignore it. Your grass is subject to just as many problems in the winter as it is in the spring and summer. As the snow begins to melt, your lawn will become subject to snow mold. This is something that can infect your lawn in late winter. To prevent this problem and to take care of all other lawn care in Needham, MA, call Cataldo Landscape Inc. We are the landscaping professionals.
Snow mold is a fungus that grows in circles up to a foot in diameter on your lawn. The number of circles can vary and can grow close together so it looks like a large section of your lawn is dead. There are two kinds of snow fungus, pink and gray snow mold.
Gray snow mold does less damage than pink snow mold. It only damages the blades of grass but it can survive during the hot summer months. It is most common in colder areas with heavy snowfall, the likes of which we have seen in the past few weeks. Pink snow mold infects the roots of grass, leaving long-lasting damage. It can also survive the hot summer months by hiding in decomposing plants. Snow mold can be prevented by a thorough clearing of brush in the summertime.
