How do I get rid of toadstools from my lawn?



Sweep them off, or just wait until they go, they don't last long.

That certainly is the usual advice but one of my customers has had literally hundreds of toadstools in her lawn for the past 6 weeks. They are driving her nuts and she is driving me nuts wittering about them!

She simply will not accept that there is no simple way to eliminate them.Chemicals do not work.

I'm told that if you dig a trench one foot wider at each side of the toad stool clum and at least a foot deep and remove all the soil and replace with fresh soil this will work. I've not tried it though.. With a small clump this is doable but my customer has a fairy ring 10 feet in diameter which means a trench over 30 feet long

It ain't gonna happen! :)
