Mushroom Soil Aeration

Wild mushrooms, such as Stinkhorns can be an eyesore, especially if they start popping up all over your lawn. Here are three natural remedies you can use to get rid of mushrooms.

How to Get Rid of Mushrooms

Mushroom Soil Aeration

1. Monitor Your Irrigation System
The appearance of wild mushrooms may be a result of a poor lawn irrigation system. Aerate the soil on a regular basis to improve the draining efficiency of the soil.

2. Apply Nitrogen Fertilizer
The application of nitrogen fertilizer could help speed up the decomposition of organic matter and eliminate the growth of wild mushrooms.

3. Avoid Shaded Areas
Wild mushrooms thrive in shaded conditions as they do not require photosynthesis to grow. If possible, try and re-organize your lawn space so there aren’t too many areas that rarely get sunlight throughout the day.
