Question: I have there ugly mushrooms growing in my front lawn. How can I get rid of them

Answer: Mushrooms appear cyclically. They are part of the natural process of decay and renewal. They are not doing any harm to the lawn or other living plants. They are probably growing on an old, underground, rotting tree root or possibly wood shavings used during soil preparation prior to planting the lawn. Once that organic material decays, the mushrooms will stop on their own. In the meantime, rake them up.
