Mushrooms & Fungus in garden

Please see the below images;
We live in a newly built house (7 month old) and in the back garden we've been getting loads of mushrooms, white stuff and yellow stuff appearing which I initally thought was cat sick, but I don't think it is anymore. It's getting worse and spreading across our large back garden. How do I go about getting rid of these? I assume they're fungus or something.

    We have a new thread about mushrooms/fungi - I'll find the link to it and you can get some ID help there.
    However, most mushrooms appearing are perfectly harmless in our gardens, and pose no threat. They're part of the ecosystem  :)
    The 2nd last one looks interesting

    The yellow one might be one known as ‘Dog Vomit Slime Mould’

    The white one could be Dog Sick Slime Mould.

    A horizontal photo of the last one showing stem and gills would help with ID. They will all disappear on their own shortly and won't kill anything. They live on stuff which is already dead helping to recycle it.

    Hope you've already had your lunch @jmmrly :D

    You'd think they could have come up with a slightly more pleasant name wouldn't you?
