LOL, the mushrooms are white and are probably poisonous.

I often chomp on champignon's. My wife can pick the good ones with her eyes closed so I leave that duty to her though.

But she often inserts chump change in your arse because you have no pockets and your mouth is always full for chomping champignions.

Just setup some outdoor speakers and play Phish, and I think your mushrooms will magically disappear.

RE: Anybody have mushroom problems with their yard?

Mushrooms are the reproductive portion of the fungus. Fungi are either sparophytic or parasitic. They either consume dead things or consume live things. I'm betting yours are saprophytes. I'm betting you have a 'faerie ring' in your yard--a circle of mushrooms. The fungus grows outward as it depletes teh food source so each year the ring gets a teenie-weenie bit larger. Each year, after several days of rain and moderate temperatures the little fungi fruiting bodies emerge.

You can kill them with a thorough soaking of fungicide. It will take several years for the food source to be re-infected at which time you apply more fungicide. Repeat for eternity.

You can deprive them of their food source. You do this by increasing the rate of decomposition of the food source, if the plants are saprophytes. usually fungi are phosphate-limited so a small amount of phosphate on the lawn will encourage their growth, increasing the rate at which they consume the food source. You will get even MORE fruiting bodies, but the food source will eventually disappear and so will the fingi.

If it is a fungus growing on cow shit, that when the stem is split, immediately turns purple, and has an annulus scar on the stipe, send it to me for proper disposal.

Botnst, did it occur to you that he may have a leaking septic tank and that these fungi are drenched with ample supply of organic goodies? Basidiomycota or ascomycota?
