This fungus just started growing in the most saturated parts of my friend's garden. Any idea on what it is? Will it harm the plants around it?

I think its what's left of a fungus after the spores have dispersed.

I'm not a fungi expert but it could be the remains of cannonball fungus aka artillary fungus.
Could be either S. ingoldii or S. stellatus?

We have a Fungi Forum here on NGA. I will put the @ symbol in front of a few names to alert some folks from the Fungi Forum to have a look at your photos.
