    Mushrooms are the reproductive structures of fungi which are breaking down organic matter in the soil. They are usually indicative of a healthy population of soil microorganisms. They do not appear when conditions are dry. There is no practical way to get rid of them.

    Step on them, kick 'em. A customer told me once to put a laundry detergent paste on them. Guess it shrivels them up in a hurry. Sounds like a waste to me.

    put them on a pb and j sammy, wait 30 minutes, blast the wall by pink floyd and put on the wizard of oz. yes, the snozberries do taste like snozberries and you are tripping....man.

    no chemicals, just let them run their course. meanwhile work on your slice with your 7 iron like someone else said.
