I was raking my yard yesterday evening and I have a ton of mushrooms in my yard. I just moved to this house about 2 months ago from Seattle. That yard had moss galore but no mushrooms. This yard has a ton of them. So how do I get rid of them and what is causing them?
We have a lot of that on the eastside. It's caused by very fertile, moist soil, in most areas here because of the constant dropping of organic matter from trees and the rain. According to TV/Radio Master Gardener Ciscoe the best way to get rid of them is to practice your golf swing and shoot them into the street or neighbor's yard. There really isn't a treatment to kill or prevent them.
Oh Ciscoe, is there something he doesn't know?
I figured my soil was pretty fertile. My yard in Seattle never had mushrooms and a lot of moss. Now I'm in Bellevue and I have a nice yard, with mushrooms.
