It’s A Serious Problem…

Shrooms. We hear it all the time. Someone’s family member or friend is having a problem with mushrooms. What can you do? Should you have an intervention? They do not realize how harmful it is…to their lawn! The most common cause of lawn mushrooms is poor drainage, leading to an excess of moisture. At Terra Bites Lawn Service LLC, we know that lawn mushrooms are not only an eyesore, but can be potentially dangerous to children and pets. Here are some ways to get rid of them.

  1. Let Terra Bites Mow Them

If you use our lawn services already, then you do not have to worry about these pesky, fungal eyesores; we will take care of everything. If you do not, cutting them with a knife at their base, then throwing them in a plastic bag in your trashcan is probably the best way to do it, so they do not spread spores.

  1. Reduce The Amount Of Shade In Your Yard

Mushrooms. Love. Shade. It is how they thrive. So, decrease the amount of shady spots in your yard, and decrease the amount of mushrooms. Also, overwatering your lawn creates the perfect breeding ground for these little guys. Terra Bites uses weather monitoring technology to ensure your lawn is watered just enough.

  1. De-thatch To Create Circulation

De-thatching your lawn is a great way to minimize shade and create more pathways for air circulation. You have a couple of options for doing this. You can either: manually go over your entire lawn with a convex rake, break your back with a power rake, or hire Terra Bites to help you de-thatch your lawn.

So, if you no longer want “fungus among us” or just do not think mushrooms are “Fun-gi’s” give Terra Bites a call. Lawn mushrooms
