Snow Mould

Snow Mold is often seen as circular patches of “dead” and matted grass blades with a web like white or pinkish mould. Most often the webbing is not present and what remains is a dry/slimy brown spot.

The disease becomes apparent as snow melts, exposing the grass to the cool, wet temperatures of early spring.  Keep in mind, snow is not always necessary for the disease to occur.  Most instances of Snow Mould only affect the grass blade, so full recovery of the turf plant is common.

Snow mould occurs at cooler times of the year. Brown patches appear followed by fluffy white growth.
If signs of Snow Mould appear please contact Luxury Lawns immediately who can recommend a range of treatments.
Handy Tip:  Avoid walking on grass areas that are covered in  snow or heavy frost.
