4 Damaging Effects Snow Can Have On Your Lawn

1. Rock salt can damage your grass.
Rock salt is meant to dissolve the surface that is underneath it, which is why it's great for sidewalks and steps but not so much for your grass. If extra salt somehow gets on to your grass from your sidewalk, water those affected areas when you can, weather pending.

2. Snow can create a mold on your grass.
Have you ever heard of snow mold? It's a real problem. Snow mold is a fungal disease that can develop on your lawn under the snow. Don't let snow stay piled up on your lawn for very long to try and prevent this disease from taking over.

3. Ice kills the grass.
The ice freezing your beautiful blades of grass is not good. Each time you on one of your family members steps on a frozen blade of grass, breaking it, it's somewhat like squishing a dead plant.

4. Snow left on your grass for too long can create bald spots.
Snow can cause your grass to go dormant, it can turn your grass brown and damage the lawn thoroughly. To prevent bald spots from occurring seed your lawn before the snow hits.
