The Q&A Archives: I have a mushroom or fungus

Question: How Can I get rid of this fungus it is a round dark ball with a cross or slit in the top it even broke it way through the asfalt drive way it come up all over and even in groups

Answer: Without knowing exactly what you're dealing with, I'm at a loss to make a suggestion. If it is a mushroom, you can spray lime-sulfur and that should kill it off. Mushrooms grow because there is some decomposing organic matter underground that's feeding it. You may need to dig down and remove whatever dead roots, old wood or other organic debris that's causing the mushrooms to grow.

Best wishes with your landscape!
