Puffball mushrooms? Get rid of them?
Hello all, I'm new to the lawn care forum. I spend all of my time in the citrus and tomatoe forums. I've recently purchased a new home, about 2 years ago now. We've seeded and reseeded the back yard with fescue. Last year, we started a lawn service which may be spreading fungus/toadstools in the yard. Please forgive my ignorance. I know absolutely nothing about this sort of thing, all I know is that both my front yard (bermuda grass) and backyard (fescue) are COVERED with the most awful looking mushrooms I've ever seen. In the back, I have clusters of little gray/white mushrooms with holes in the top. They've definitely spread since our first siting. I've read that I can sprinkle corn meal to get rid of them. I don't mind them except that where they are, there is no grass. It seems they've killed the grass. Don't know for sure. These are not the cute little mushrooms that pop-up after a rain. These ugly little things are always there. Should I worry? An online search revealed a picture of a "puffball" mushroom. My mushrooms look a lot like the tiny version. Please help. What would you do? I have about an acre of area covered with these. Thanks!
