Artillery Fungus in mulch question


Hi All,

The mulch in front of my house is infected with artillery fungus. I wanted to know if there is a good way of dealing/maintaining the fungus without removing the mulch?

I was speaking to a landscaper recently and he mentioned that raking the mulch will help. It will not eliminate the fungus but will aerate the mulch and introduce new organisms into the mulch which may combat the fungus.

Is that true? Is there anything else I can do as well?

Most likely it's a moisture problem that brought this on. It's not uncommon for mulch to be wet when you get it.

Raking & moving it, in order to dry it out, might help a little.

You could try spraying with a fungicide - available at just about any home store.

You might also want to give this site a read.
