Michelle,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

There is really not a good way to control mushrooms in the lawn and they don't do the lawn any harm. The poof types are called puff balls and likewise are not diseases of plants but just turning organic matter back into soil again.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
