I can only apologise for how horrible these pictures are.

My girls went to play outside in our garden and the youngest stepped in this!!!

I’ve had a look and there are patches of this all over the grass! What on Earth is it? And does anyone know how I go about getting rid of it?

Any help much appreciated.

Googling suggests a type of algae

Is it some sort of egg cluster?
It does look like algae but why would there be algae in a lawn?

Frog spawn?

The next stage of the apocalypse. Or an alien invasion.

Looks like something has spawned on your lawn.
