Are mushrooms bad for the garden?
Thanks for writing. Most of the fungi that produce mushrooms in the landscape aren't harmful to the yard --- so in that vein, you are correct.
Pulling them out only removes them from sight; it doesn't actually affect the fungus as the mushrooms are its reproductive organs. The main body of the fungus is a network of thread-like tissues beneath the soil surface.
