Snow Mold On Your Lawn

Now that the snow pack has receded, snow mold is revealing itself. K-Lakes Meteorologist and Master Gardener Tony Schumacher says there are two kinds, gray and pink snow mold. The pink is the more serious.

Tony says unless it is serious, it should be left alone. He says it is certainly unsightly, but sunshine and warm weather is all your lawn needs.

Tony says to avoid it in the first place, do not use nitrogen on your yard in November. He says if it snows before the ground freezes, there will be lush growth underneath, promoting mold growth. He also says it is a good idea to remove dead leaves.
