My garden has become over run with this fungus which is dense and 2-4" thick under about 1-2"of soil and was mulched with wood chips over the winter. I don't think new plants would grow in it. Regardless, I would like to know how to get rid of it. Thank you '
Fungus developing in mulch is definitely a part of the decomposition process. Read here about that: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/mulch/common-mulch-fungus.htm
However, if you think there's a more serious problem here, you may want to take measures to eliminate it, including soil testing:

Hi I found this strange jelly like substance in my garden. It does seem to have roots but im not too sure. Any idea what it is?
I didn't get a photo but I suspect it is a fungus of which there are many types.
Noticed these growthscome out of the soil under my potted frangipani... can anyone tell me what they are? Thx
It looks like bird's nest fungus. This article will help:
There are clusters of white fuzzy balls by the surface of the soil and I'm worried! Are they pests? Fungus? Soil: moist. Air circulation: well but warm during day, cooler by night. Plant: kept clean and dusted every week; tips of leaves turned yellow; watered plant when soil became dry (usually 1.5 week intervals)
Here's an article with info:
This ‘mould’ looking growth tends to appear on the nodes of the plant. This growth is appearing both in potted plants and those rooted in the ground within my garden.
It looks like lichens, which are normally harmless. However, they are more often seen on tree bark, but any woody stems can get them. So, something else is killing your plants.
I've just read your article on the use of hydrogen peroxide for plants. In another article I found this quote and was wondering if 'hydrogen oxygen' is another name for hydrogen peroxide? "He recommends using 1 cup of hydrogen oxygen per gallon of water to help prevent fungal issues."
I have never heard it called that, but I guess that could be another way to say it. I wouldn't know any other configuration for the two molecules, other than water... Which is, also, hydrogen oxygen. I would assume that this is what is mean- Peroxide.
Here's an article that explains how to make this yourself:
