How to Stop Mushrooms Growing in Your Lawn
Eliminate pesky mushrooms from your lawn. (mushrooms image by Deborah Durbin from

A well-groomed and maintained lawn is the desire of every home and business owner. Unfortunately keeping your lawn free of weeds and fungus is a time-consuming task. The presence of mushrooms in a lawn, while harmless, is certainly unappealing and annoying. While removing the mushrooms by hand is a temporary solution to the problem, eliminating the food source of the mushrooms is the most permanent and prudent solution.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Clean up after your pet. One major source of food for lawn mushrooms is pet waste. Eliminate the waste of your pet from the lawn and effectively eradicate a major source of food for the mushrooms.

  2. 2

    Remove rotting mulch. Mulch is a second source of food for lawn mushrooms. By cleaning up rotting mulch from the lawn you reduce the chances of mushrooms sprouting up continuously.

  3. 3

    Grind up any tree stumps in your yard. It is best to have this procedure professionally handled as the process of removing the stumps often requires large machinery. The removal of this last food source will effectively deplete all off the mushrooms' food sources and eradicate them.
