LAST MOW OF THE YEAR TO PREVENT WHITE MOLD PREVENTION
When your turf visibly stops growing is when you should mow your lawn for the last time of the season. One concern over the winter is the threat of snow mold. Coming in two varieties (pink and gray), snow mold is a fungus that can damage grass in late winter/early spring when the snow starts to melt. Just because your lawn has never had it, doesn’t mean it can’t take hold in the right conditions. The best method of prevention is to lower your cutting blade by about 25% on your final mow of the year. This will reduce your lawns height which will in turn prevent grass blade matting (the perfect growing conditions for white mold). Also, clearing the leaves before the first snowfall is another important step you can take to prevent a potential outbreak.
