Default Mushrooms

I've got 2 spots in the yard that keep producing mushrooms, its in a area where we cut down 2 Hackberry trees a couple years ago. What can I do to keep these things from coming back?

I'm certainly no horticulturist but, I have mushrooms that grow in an area where I have an oak stump under a car port. They grow there every spring. I also notice that where I spray Round Up down my Orange tree rows, different kinds of weeds than normal start growing instead of grass. My belief is that Round up may change the PH of the soil. All things that grow, like differing levels of PH. So maybe if you put some dolomite or some other type of PH raising material there, something other than Mushrooms would grow.

Just a thought.

I've never had issues with them. Every time I see them I get on the vinyl gloves and pluck then at the base as to not release the spores on the underside of the cap, then they don't come back. Is there any way to remove the stump?

Stump was ground down when the tree was cut down. The mushrooms are growing in the spot where the tree once stood.

I'm beginning to think that mushrooms are what they use to make the heat shield on the space shuttle. Everything I put on them things just makes em grow.

...I'm thinking Napalm, where can I get a used B-52? Anybody here know how to fly one? I still think the shuttles are for sale after they are decommissioned.


Just saying....

Not sure where you can get those, but have you tried yelling at them?

I guess these are non-edible mushrooms, cos I know if I had edible ones popping up in my backyard I wouldnt be trying to stop them! Yum!
