    Well back to the mushrooms, talk about good conditions for them! In 11 years I've never had one in the back yard, and found a dozen today. Then I went to the front yard and over 50! I just mowed 3 days ago and there wasn't a single one.

    Guess I better rent a backhoe and dig the whole yard up, lol.

    I just noticed today - I have HUNDREDS in front of my shed door that I've never had before. I get a handful under the evergreen tree and it doesn't seem any worse than usual though.
    That's not sweat. It's your fat, crying.

    Personally my mushrooms have been better. I watched my neighbour attack his new ring with vinegar and they started to grow just outside the grass that he killed. This as on top of the ground he dug out twice.... The patch always moves and grows a few inches over.

    Better dig up your lawn tho.. It's the only answer.

    Random thought: would anyone risk eating these?

    i have a lots of mushrooms this year, must be good year for those to appear. I have heard that spreading lime help to control environment (lesser acidity) and aerating spots where they appear. I did use nitrogen reach fertilizer as well. Otherwise, try to identify and see if edible and enjoy it (LOL).

    Do not spread lime. All of Calgary has alkaline soil unless you're living in Britannia by the river.

    Pick them gently everyday, making a special effort to pull from the base of the stem, that's the best way to keep them from spreading. Do not mow over them, they can spread by exposure.

    Try to reduce shade and moisture to the area.

    Give it a yer, but be vigilant in picking them. If they're still there after next year, or if they get ridiculously worse, you might want to cut that area out and lay down new sod. If you do cut it out, poke around in the dirt for any food source like buried wood etc.

    My last yard struggled with these off and on for a few years. By picking them everyday, I was able to reduce their numbers and eventually they went away. It sure was a pain though.
    Just reiterating my note from the last time this came up. Do not bother digging up your grass if you're noticing random mushrooms in random places....especially this year with all the moisture.

    Mushrooms do not need burried wood to grow...it could be a concentration of thatch (i.e. dead grass) and a couple spores.

    Just get out there and pick them every other day and they will start toi subside.

    DO NOT EAT THEM.

    Throw them in the gravel alley, firepit, or bucket.

    Don't get crazy. Just pick them and they will slow down and eventually go away. I have a brand new lawn with a top layer of screened loam under it that i put down myself. I had mushrooms earlier this year and now they're gone.

    This is the correct answer.

    Mushrooms are spread by spores from the other mushrooms. Picking them is the most effective way to get rid of them.

    Mowing over them is the worst thing you can do to keep them from spreading and poison/chemicals will likely just ruin your lawn.

    accidently found a solution for mushrooms. I bought the little dragon from Lee Valley, for the weeds. I don't like how it leaves burn patches for two weeks buti thoughti would try it on the mushrooms and they were gone immediately, never to return.

    I have a mushroom problem in my yard and not sure what to do. They are brown, grow in large clusters and keep growing back even as I pick them. What is the best way to deal with them? So far I've tried picking them before they grow too large in the hopes they stop coming back but so far it's not working.

    I've recently noticed they are spreading through my back yard in many areas and concentrated in a certain area in my front yard. My neighbour went as far as to cut out sections of his grass but the mushrooms started growing just outside the area he cut out.

    Replacing my entire lawn seems like a horrible idea for many reasons... So what else can I do?
    Start by shitting in your toilet instead of your yard (and in other people's threads)

    A) Why so angry?
    B) Why bump this thread from 2016?
    C) Were you trying to figure out where to buy magic mushrooms?

    Maybe if he had a mushroom patch he would have something interesting to post on Instagram
