Help! When the snow melted, I discovered large, circular tan patches on my grass! What is it and how do I get rid of it?

Sounds like gray snow mold. This mold sometimes develops on cool-season grasses that have been under snow for several months. Don?t worry, the symptoms will disappear in warm weather. Prevent it from reoccurring next year by mowing until your lawn stops growing in fall. And avoid late-fall applications of fertilizer. Also, move any lawn furniture or heavy objects off the grass before the snow hits.
