I Have Mushrooms in My Lawn, Now What?
Environmental Factors and Mushroom Growth
Several factors influence the growth and appear of mushrooms in your lawn. Moisture, temperature, soil composition, and organic matter content all play a role. Mushrooms tend to thrive in moist conditions, so periods of rainfall or excessive irrigation can trigger their emergence. They can also be from debris buried in the soil as it deteriorates. The debris could be from construction and is often found where a tree used to be as the remains of its roots decay.
Maintaining a Healthy Lawn with Mushrooms
Rather than considering mushrooms in your lawn as a problem, it’s better to view them as indicators of thriving ecosystem. To maintain a healthy lawn, focus on providing optimal growing conditions for grass, including regular watering and proper mowing while we feed the lawn with appropriate nutrients.
What’s the Treatment for Mushrooms?
There’s no chemical control and the best method of control is to use gloves and remove them by hand and throw them away. Kicking them over or using a rake are the easiest options. While the majority of mushrooms in lawns are harmless, keeping your pets and children away from them is always a good rule of thumb.
