Found slime mold on back lawn - identified from aggie-hort.
Have you experienced this?

Please tell me more about this. My GF has been battling what she calls "a fungus" on her lawn. I thought it was odd that it was here so early? Maybe she has slime mold, too?

Cheryl and Anna, I found my info on the aggie-hort. site - just google it. The mold on the lawn is the grayish type that meandered on the lawn and it is not harmful. They advised to spray with water or to mow. My husband mowed and then we got heavy rain yesterday so we'll see if that fixed the problem.
