Remove all rotting logs, dead plants, tree branches and grass clippings.
Use a rake to rip the toadstools out of the ground. Put them in a garbage tag, tie it tightly and put it in a trash can.
Use a hoe to break up the soil where you found the toadstools.
Put on gardening gloves, and treat the ground with 1 pound of nitrogen-rich fertilizer for every 1000 square feet of lawn. Apply extra fertilizer to the areas prone to toadstool development. Saturate the ground with a garden hose, as this helps the soil absorb the fertilizer. Keep extra fertilizer on hand, and reapply it several times a year.
Inspect the lawn regularly. If the toadstools reappear, rip out the sod or grass in which they are growing, discard it and aerate the soil with a hoe.
