    I have a client who is complaining about mushrooms on her lawn. I live in Northeastern PA. Any ideas on how they got there? Does anyone know how to remove them & keep them from coming back next year?
    Thanks for the help!

    Without looking at what type, I can only give the more common reasons. If your temps have been fair and your precipitation somewhat high, then your problem might be decaying surface roots from a once removed tree. In yards with high nytrogen, this is common. Some types of mushrooms will develope in yards with a thatch buildup. Less watering and a dethatching to expose the ground to airflow might help. It has worked in the past for me.
