Mushrooms and Toadstools

Posted by John Fulton -

A common complaint this year has been the large amount of mushrooms and toadstools coming up in lawns. To begin with, these are in the decay fungi group. They are decaying old tree roots or lumber under the surface. This means there is no ready control for them, other than removing the material to be decayed.

The best, and only, thing to do is physically remove them by raking, mowing, or picking. The spores grow when weather and temperature conditions are just right so you usually won't have them continuously, rather on an occasional basis.
