Recently due to the weather we have seen many toadstools and mushrooms appearing on lawns.
Toadstools can be removed by picking off by hand (wear gardening gloves as a precaution) or brushing them off. Alternatively they can be mown off with a box on the lawnmower in order to collect them.
Generally there are two methods of reducing the development of toadstools in established lawns:
There are no fungicides available in the UK for use against toadstools and mushrooms in lawns. Fungi are beneficial to the lawn and as toadstools are only temporary and do not damage the lawn, there is no need to apply a fungicide.
To conclude, fungi in lawns and turfed areas are, for the most part, beneficial. Some fungi do cause disease and will need your attention. Toadstools usually appear when conditions are right for them, however, they will not damage the turf and are usually only temporary.
