Mushroom burdening your lawn?

Mushroom burdening your lawn?
It is a common frustration for many to have mushrooms in the lawn. This is understandable, but most mushrooms are not a direct threat to the lawn itself!

 

How do mushrooms appear in the lawn?

It's important to understand why they grow before tackling them. Fungi are involved in the breakdown of dead organic material in the soil. Mushrooms are fungi that aid this process.


Lawns often contain plenty of sources of rotting organic matter. Leaves, twigs, grass clippings, and even animal excrement provide the ideal conditions for mushrooms to grow!



"It's best to pull the mushroom out or just mow it''



Removing mushrooms from the lawn

It is best to pull out or mow mushrooms. Just make sure to remove the whole mushroom to prevent any spores from spreading.


To permanently remove mushrooms, you may have to address problems with your lawn.
  • If the lawn is too wet, you can aerate.
  • By collecting the cut grass instead of mulching, you limit the amount of organic material in the soil.
  • Dethatching also removes unnecessary organic material.
  • If there is too much shade, it helps to prune trees and thin them out to have more light in the garden.
  • You can also use a fungicide, but if the cause is not addressed, the mushrooms will always return.

 

Leaving mushrooms in the lawn

While lawn mushrooms may look ugly, they are very beneficial to the lawn. A mushroom's extensive root system helps the soil retain water.


Mushrooms help to break down organic materials, in this process, they return nutrients to the lawn!
