    Keep putting Epson salt and water mix on them. Will rot and kill the root. Won't come back. Soil check helps, as they grow more in pine tree areas. Due to the alkaline.

    Don't mulch your yard when you mow. Also try vinegar.

    I know the mushrooms look ugly, but you really can't get rid of them....depending on the species, they may spread through filaments under the soil. Typically mushrooms grow on fertile soil, on or near old stumps or other materials in the soil, and help break them down into nutrients. They're a healthy part of a lawn.
