I have an old pile (about two years) of grass in my back yard from mowing. Mix of mostly grass, some manure, leaves. Would this be a suitable outdoor substrate? I'm thinking of mixing in a few quarts of spawn, but I don’t want to waste them.

If u dig down to the black crumbly stuff in the middle - that should be primo ...dont use the more slimy outer layer ..
Add some lime and peat or coir if its mushy and mud like, to give good texture for your babies to cimb through...
The newer grass clippings can b used as a mulch layer to hold in moisture...

i bet if anything they would be good for bulking up substraits as i remeber composted grass tends to be pretty light and airy..
