What is it and how do I get rid of it?

Asked September 20, 2018, 11:40 AM EDT

I had a bit of a hole in the backyard and bought fill dirt from BigLots and these started growing. They have multiplied and have deep roots. I pull them out weekly and they return. How do I kill them?

This looks like a type of mushroom or fungi that grows on organic matter like old tree roots. They are usually found following rainy weather. Simply knock them over or dispose of in the trash. There is no way to permanently eliminate mushrooms.
