Jelly like substance coming from ground

Posted On: September 28, 2015

A green jelly like substance is coming up from the ground(typically between the months of July-September each year). No idea what this is or the cause or how to stop it.

That sounds like algae and it can be very slippery and dangerous. It can be controlled by using Path Mosskillers, such as Mossgo, but ignore it on a lawn area.

Dampness encourages it and should be reduced if possible.
