Laying new turf often stimulates mushroom growth, particularly in warm and humid conditions. There’s no need to worry, they usually disappear after a few weeks, or when the season changes.

Mushrooms can be cleared by mowing the lawn or brushing them away. To prevent them spreading make sure you completely remove them from your garden. Garden mushrooms are unlikely to edible, so don’t allow children to pick them and dispose of them in a safe place out of harm’s way.

The longer your lawn is established, the less likely mushrooms are to return. It is unlikely they will reappear after the lawn’s first growing season.
