My nice lawn is being overun by mushrooms.Please can anybody give me advice on how to get rid of them.



If they are "mushrooms" you could try the old country trick of eating them ! midden

I don't think digging the mushies up would help - after all, they are just the fruiting body of the fungus - the 'plant' itself is spread about under the gound. As Marguerite says, I think improving your lawn would help - i.e. using fertilisers and maybe improving the drainage. Some mushies stem from old rotten wood underneath the surface - if you think that might be the case, then only an excavation will tell!

I know that many people have got fungi this year - including me! I am sure that it's the dratted weather's fault! Everywhere has got too wet.
