2/23/2019- Because of our active weather pattern and snow pack the past 2 months there could be some areas of snow mold on shady parts of the lawn, where the snow has not melted in a few weeks. Once the snow melts, we recommend that you lightly rake areas of matted turf to allow air to circulate and light to penetrate to help dry out snow mold affected areas. Chemical controls are rarely needed for snow mold with the climate in our region. Although our recent weather has not been favorable for Clover Mite activity, be on the lookout for straw colored patches of the lawn in dry/sunny areas as this may be an indicator that mites are actively feeding. Please call us if you have any questions or suspect that you have snow mold or a clover mite problem. Also please remember to water your trees and shrubs throughout dormancy.
