I have just been out to the front garden and discovered patches of what appear to be slimy green bubbles on the lawn. What are they and what should I do? Ger

The important thing is to stay off these areas of bubbly slime because it is extremely spillery and you can get a nasty fall.

This is algae growing on the surface of the soil amid the old grass leaves. It does no harm to the lawn and will eventually go away. It can be treated with lawn sand or sulphate of iron, which used to control lawn moss.
