I have fungus in the grass is it serious?




We've had lots of questions on this recently. No the fungi are not dangerous either ignore, they will go away soon, or put your hand inside a plastic bag and pick them off and bin them.

Are there any trees nearby? Many species of fungi form associations with tree roots (beneficial) and at this time of year produce their reproductive structures we often call toadstools appear.

Other fungi live off dead "thatch" ie the old leaves of grass that build up in lawns over time. Without being rude:-) I suspect that from the look of your lawn, it is the latter?
