I’ve mush­room for lawn im­prove­ment

Sunday Mirror - - PUZZLES -

I’m get­ting mush­rooms on my lawn. It’s open to the sun so I can’t see why it would have drainage prob­lems. I don’t want my kids eat­ing the mush­rooms. Help! – Ge­orgina via email DAVID: The soil may need to be aer­ated so mois­ture and air cir­cu­late bet­ter, es­pe­cially if the kids run around on it ev­ery day, com­pact­ing it. Use a gar­den fork or spe­cial­ist tools. And check un­der the soil for de­com­pos­ing roots from long-re­moved trees as fungi will thrive on them.
