Does sound like you mean a lawn - fascinated by the 'bobbly' description, lol! Most likely a result of snow, I'd imagine, but a photograph would be useful in case you've got fusarium patch disease, which does sometimes occur after snow, in particular if the grass has been walked on whilst snow covered.

My understanding is it is never a good idea to walk on grass when it is snow covered - Am I correct Bamboo?

Yes - and for that very reason, it encourages 'snow mould' (fusarium patch disease)

Mr MG clears our slabbed paths and we stay off the actual ground until it has defrosted. The damage done by walking on snow covered and or frozen soil is considerable.
