Where Do Mushrooms Come From?

With the spring season comes extra rain and that means mushrooms and toadstools will be appearing in lawns and gardens everywhere. These unusual formations are actually the fruiting bodies of various fungi that grow from decaying wood (tree stumps, roots, construction debris) located underground.

If you’d like to remove mushrooms and toadstools from your lawn and garden, a fungicide isn’t necessary (or advisable). Instead, you can simply mow them or cut them out with a pair of scissors. As the rainy season fades away, they will too.
