Mushrooms and Toadstools
Mushrooms, toadstools and puffballs are the fruiting bodies of fungi. They are grown by the fungi to produce spores.
Mushrooms, toadstools, puffballs and other fruiting bodies are the spore producing growths from fungi. Usually the fungi are growing in soil, wood and other decaying matter. They are often found in lawns where they are found in circles of mushrooms known as fairy rings .
Fungi fruiting bodies such as mushrooms in lawns are often syptoms of decaying wood in the soil, perhaps dead tree roots.
It is not usually necessary to control mushrooms but some fungi can damage lawns and some are toxic if consumed accidentally.
The fungal infection causing mushrooms, toadstools, puffballs and other fungal fruiting bodies can be controlled by using Thiram Fungus Control on the lawn or turf.
Fungal diseases on lawns are exacerbated by stress caused by draught, poor drainage, low soil fertility, soil pH and excessively low cutting. Try to address any ways that your lawn may be under stress; improve drainage if over wet, water if over dry, adjust soil pH to 6.5-7.0 or raise the cutting height of your lawn mower.
