When your turf visibly stops growing is when you should mow your lawn for the last time of the season. No need to overthink this one! However, one concern that should be on every landscaper’s mind is the threat of snow mold. Coming in two varieties (pink and gray), snow mold is a fungus that outright kills 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).  Keeping your thatch layer below ½ inch, as well as leaf-mulching or raking all the leaves away before the first snowfall are two other important steps you can take to prevent a potential outbreak.  Do not let leaves sit on the lawn over the winter.
