How to Get Rid of White Clover: Controlling Clover in Your Lawn
Here’s some good news: as weeds go, white clover isn’t that bad.
It’s pretty easy to control, it gives you dainty white flowers, and attracts cute frolicking bunnies. (Although if you have a vegetable garden, that bunny part might not excite you.)
Seed companies actually used to include clover seed in their lawn mixes on purpose. Clover takes nitrogen out of the air and soil and makes it available to your lawn.
But it’s still a weed. So, how do you get rid of white clover in your lawn?
Let’s take a look.
What White Clover Looks Like
A sure sign of clover is its delicate round white or pink flowers. You’ll also see three leaflets at the end of a long stem.
How to Control White Clover
Clover thrives in lawns that are undernourished, so a healthy, well-fed lawn means fewer clover. Fertilize regularly — a thick lawn will crowd out clover.
And mow high. Clover grows low to the ground and has a shallow root system. So if you mow your lawn higher, at about three inches, your taller grass will block the sunlight clover needs to thrive.
A Healthy Lawn Helps Control White Clover
The best method of control for weeds is establishing healthy turf, including proper fertilizing, watering, and mowing.
Weeds hate a thick, healthy lawn. Dense grass crowds out weeds and blocks the sunlight their seeds need to sprout.
Weeds love to push through struggling lawns to take over weak spots. So your best line of defense is to keep your grass thick, lush. and healthy with a lawn care service annual maintenance program for healthy, strong roots. Then weed seeds will have a tougher time sprouting.
