You could also rake it up and reseed it using top soil. You could re-sod it, but I'd like to show you a much easier and quicker way without all that expense and fuss using the Grass Stitcher.

Also without using potentially harmful pesticides. Snow mold happens in the early spring. You'll begin to notice it after the snow melts.

It happens when an early snow prevents the ground from freezing, especially around driveways where the snow piles up.


Perforating the infected area will help it to dry out and recover quicker. Sometimes, if the snow mold is severe, you may need to reseed.

Perforating the snow mold is easy with the Grass Stitcher - just roll it back and forth over the infected area.

It does a great job drying out the snow mold and also prepares the area for seeding. Here you can see the unique perforations the Grass Stitcher makes. The holes are wide and it churns and loosens the soil.

This will accelerate the drying of the snow mold and when you apply the seed it will easily find its way into the holes. Then when you water, the loose soil will fall in around the seed, creating the perfect environment for seed germination.

All you need to do now is apply the grass seed. Make sure to spread enough seed to cover the area, but don't put so much seed that it's heavily layered on top of each other because too much seed will tend to rot.

Spread enough seed to cover the area with some slight overlapping, then water. Make sure to keep the grass seed moist for the next two weeks. There's no need to remove the dead grass, it gets recycled and protects the seed from drying out.

After watering, the seeds easily made their way into the holes and germinated well. Then, 15 days later, the grass plants spread out and the lawn has thickened. The end result is a completely repaired lawn with little effort, little cost, and without any pesticides.
