    Hi
    I got new lawn turf laid earlier in year which hasn't been that successful a job :-( as per attached thread - http://gardenerscorner.co.uk/forum/...ions-for-how-to-restore-it.66701/#post-819643

    Anyways over last few weeks I've noticed mushroom/fungi appearing in places throughout the lawn as per enclosed pics from earlier today

    Lawn got plenty of feeds over the summer month and fertilizer etc

    Is it just that the lawn is wet (we haven't had that much rain so far this autumn..) that resulting in these or it the lawn deficient in something

    Thoughts?
    Thanks

    Fungi in the lawn is a sign that the soil is nice and rich and well fed. I wouldn't worry about them. They only last for a few weeks. If you have small kids and you're worried about them taste testing the mushrooms, just sweep the mushrooms away. They offer no resistance and don't seem to harm the lawn.

      Thanks from me as well; I've got exactly the same on my lawn and was browsing before posting that very topic.

      Hmm interesting. I have never fed the lawn and had two the size of dinner plates a couple of weeks ago.

        My back lawn is fed, my front lawn has never been fed. Fungi are growing on both. :dunno:

        A lot of Fungi are symbiotic with tree roots, they use them as their internet to warn each other of pest attacks.
