The Q&A Archives: Lawn Mushrooms

Question: How do I get rid of mushrooms growing in different parts of my lawn?

Answer: If the mushrooms are random, or scattered, rather than in a circle, they are probably growing because there's something underground that's decomposing. Usually an old tree stump, tree roots, or even leftover wood from construction are the causes for mushrooms growing on the soil surface. You can dig up the debris, or you can just rake up the mushrooms before they mature and release spores (that will produce more mushrooms).
