While Unattractive, Mushrooms Help Your Yard

You might be seeing some mushrooms popping up in your lawn and shrubbery bed because of all the moisture.

While they can be an eyesore, local landscapers say they are a good thing and mean your yard is healthy.

Mushrooms are there to help with decomposition in soil and the lawn.

They need rain to grow, which is why they're coming up above ground now.

However, they have deep roots and are always there.

"But there's absolutely no concern. You don't have to worry about them. This rain's going to stop here shortly, the sun's going to pop out, the mushrooms are going to disappear. So be happy you got them, because they're actually going to help your lawn," says Chuck Rodamer, owner of Rodamer's Landscaping.

Rodamer says the the only thing to be careful about is to make sure you don't eat them.
