just curious, I had a customer that had a "fairy ring" in their yard. Anyone else saw, had one on their lawn/yard?

I had 2 or 3 of them at my house in North Port, FL. They were the weirdest things, and they would pop up over night.

I have never seen such a thing. Do you know the cause of this? It's amazing.

If I remember correctly, they are caused by disease in the soil or grass. The rings appear after a lot of rain. The dampness must activate the fungus. We had the same thing in England on our lawn. There were no mushrooms, just big dark green circles.

there were mushrooms on this guys lawn--about 7 inches tall, the diameter of the ring was about 12 feet. First time Ive ever saw such a thing.

The stuff that grew in my lawn was flat on top but had mushroomy stems. They had the texture of a mushroom. And come to think about it they did always show up after a lot of rain, and in the shady part of the yard.

Weird but very cool! I've never heard of or seen one before.

I'm just throwing a thought out there, but the fairy ring pictured looks to me to be the general lid diameter of a septic tank. And if it's been raining real hard, the water table in the soil would rise, and perhaps some of the "hidden treasure" inside the tank itself could seep out into the soil. The result could then be a very well fed circle of mushrooms
