why? it is a fungus breaking down
something that was left behind when
your lawn was seeded/sodded. probably
a tree stump. you can apply fungicide
and that will work for a moment, but
the fungus will return eventually until the
material is depleted.
or you can dig up the whole area and
track down the remaining chunks of
whatever the fungus is feeding upon and
remove it and then reseed or replace the
sod, but really, it's a waste of time and
money. i know someone who goes out
in the lawn and picks the mushroom
caps because they are unsightly. i just
shake my head. removing the cap doesn't
destroy the fungal mass that is growing
in the ground and it doesn't prevent
the fungus from returning because
spores are always in the air.
enjoy it and consider it a good sign
that nature is doing what it should be
doing in the ground with left over
