Default Fairy Ring

Hi

I have been getting very large mushrooms/toadstools growing in our lawn, they grow to about 8 inches and then kind of melt on the top by turning black and all black resin drips off of them. I can see that where they are coming up they are trying to form a fairy ring.

Any ideas on how I get rid of these please?

not easily.

it's a fungus eating something, it will go away
when it has nothing left under there to feed upon.

if you really want to do this, how much do you
want to spend?

you can pour antifungals on the soil and it might
knock it back, but it will eventually come back.

if you dig up the stump/root/whatever and remove
it and replace the soil that would be the most effective
long term method, but that will take some effort and
time.

i'd leave it alone, it's a good sign that nature is
doing what it needs to do with what it's got.

google "fairy ring removal" and read all you want...

The only way I know of to permanently remove them is to dig then out
and completely replace the soil. An anti-fungal may work for a little
bit, but they will inevitably come back

Sounds kind of like shaggy manes. Eat them up?

if you get fairy rings they are usually feeding on organic matter under the lawn you dig the area and see if there is a piece of wood or a tree root that they are feeding on remove that and the fungus should soon fade away
