Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) December 18, 2006
Colder winter conditions this year spell inconvenience to snow-bound residents and can cause catastrophic damage to their lawns, according to AllAboutLawns.com, a comprehensive lawn and yard care resource. Meteorologists at the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Association Climate Prediction Center say winter conditions throughout the United States will be approximately 9 percent cooler than temperatures in 2005.
In parts of the country that receive heavy snowfall, snow removal is especially crucial for a lawn's long-term health. Pink and grey snowmolds are lawn fungi that grow under a blanket of heavy snow and kill off grass when heavy snows begin to melt in the spring. Prevention tips for fighting off the disastrous snowmold common to Kentucky bluegrass and fescues often used in snowy climates are available on AllAboutLawns.com. This Web site provides comprehensive winter lawn and garden tips, along with resources for finding lawn professionals offering snow removal service.
