Spray the toadstool caps with water and sprinkle sugar on them to overload them with carbohydrates. Alternatively, try applying a solution of Epsom Salts in lukewarm water at a rate of 60g in 5 litres to each square metre of lawn. Both treatments will cause the toadstools to shrivel and die. You may need to apply several treatments.

A lawn is an area of land covered with grass that is usually kept at a short height by mowing. Lawns are a common feature of residential and commercial landscapes, providing a soft, green carpet for outdoor activities and aesthetic appeal. They can also help to reduce soil erosion and provide a habitat for wildlife.
Lawns are typically composed of grass species that are adapted to the local climate and growing conditions. They require regular maintenance, including mowing, fertilisation, watering, and weed control, to keep them healthy and attractive.
The cultivation of a lawn begins with site preparation, which involves removing weeds, rocks, and other debris from the area. The soil is then amended with organic matter and fertiliser to provide the necessary nutrients for grass growth. Grass seed or sod is then planted and watered regularly until it is established. Once the lawn is established, regular maintenance is required to keep it healthy and attractive. This includes mowing, fertilisation, watering, and weed control.
Lawns are primarily used for recreational purposes, providing a soft, safe surface for activities such as picnics, sports, and games. They also provide aesthetic appeal and can increase property value. Lawns can also help to reduce soil erosion and provide a habitat for wildlife. Some homeowners choose to incorporate other elements into their lawns, such as flower beds, shrubs, or trees, to add visual interest.
While lawns have many benefits, they can also pose environmental concerns. Lawns require significant amounts of water, fertiliser, and pesticides to maintain, which can lead to water pollution, soil degradation, and other environmental problems. In addition, the use of gas-powered mowers and other lawn equipment can contribute to air pollution. Some homeowners choose to reduce the environmental impact of their lawns by using organic lawn care methods, such as composting and natural pest control, or by replacing all or part of their lawns with alternative landscaping options, such as native plant gardens or vegetable gardens.
Lawns are a common feature of residential and commercial landscapes, providing a soft, green carpet for outdoor activities and aesthetic appeal. While they require regular maintenance, including mowing, fertilisation, watering, and weed control, they can also provide many benefits, such as reducing soil erosion and providing a habitat for wildlife. However, they can also pose environmental concerns, which should be considered when planning and maintaining a lawn.
