Odd are, no.  You have a far better chance of finding Glomus
Intraradices, a very common type.  But, if you have substantially
enriched the soil with fertilizers, there probably won't be any
mycorrhizal links with the plants in your yard (although there may be
dormant spores).   You won't find any types in sterile potting media,
the absolute best place to mix in a little inoculant as you are starting
seeds or cuttings!
