    Gigantic fungi appeared on lawn

    There will be the tree roots beneath your lawn that's what they are growing on. Honey fungus grows on the roots of trees too so can emerge in lawns/open space up to 100ft from the trees.

    New front lawn - when to cut grass

    I let mine get to about 4 inches and cut it on the highest setting for the first few cuts. Make sure you have a sharp blade otherwise you run the risk of pulling it out

    Raising a piece of turf

    Welcome to the forum. Forget lifting turves. Respectfully. Turves not Turfs. My advice is. Continue to mow as usual. when top dressing perhaps add a little bit more to the lower areas.
