Get rid of mushrooms

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how to get rid of mushrooms in a lawn? These things seem to come back within two days of mowing.

A rake does not take them out of the ground. I was thinking like bleach or some type of additive to the ground to kill them off. Oh, and no they are not the kind you can eat smile Slimy brownish ones

Bleach will kill the grass.

You may have a stump or brush that was burried durring construction and the decomposing wood can cause mushrooms to form.

Mushrooms become a problem when we have wet weather in spring and fall. all i would recommend if they are a problem is raking them out or suck them up with the mower.

Do you get a dark green ring of grass where these mushrooms form? If so, it is Fairy Ring.

No rather they are in massive "clumps" that are spread out in a 20x20 foot area.

If i remember right there was a product 25 or 30 years ago. It was taken off the market because of how toxic it was. The best thing is to keep cutting them off & waiting for the organic matter they are living off of to decay to the point that they don't have anything to live off of.

I wonder if athlete's foot spray would work? grin I wrote that as a joke but now that I think about it just might work.
