Something has appeared on my lawn
Hi This appeared on my lawn overnight (last night) There are 4 patches each about 12" across and covering 3-4 feet. The grass has not been cut and the blades of grass appear to be coated in a foam like yellow substance. The ground in between the blades of grass is clear!

This fungus doesn't do anything harmful to the soil or grass, though. It will resolve itself once it has run its course, or when it it too dry to flourish.
