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.
