lawn Problem


By Reay

United Kingdom Gb

in one corner of our lawn we have a round jelly type fungus about 6mm in size, its black and brown in colour. it has no effect on the grass



You can live with this as it is not harming the grass.
I just left a rough area of lawn with stinkhorn and 4 or more types of mushroom/ toadstools etc.

I expect it is a Fungus called Peziza, I have it on one of my paths and a picture in my photos. I rake it up every year and bury it . Harmless but inedible, possibly poisonous but who would want to eat it?

It arises due to poor/non existent drainage in the particular area
