How to Plant a Clover Lawn

 How To Plant And Grow Clover Lawn

Do you have a lawn that requires frequent mowing, watering, commercial fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides to keep it “healthy” and attractive? With pesticides banned in many communities, your lawn may not be as green as you would like.

Not to mention, water conservation restrictions in the heat of summer can also wreak havoc on your garden. A high-maintenance, grass-covered lawn is also not healthy for you, your family, your pets, the ecosystem, or the environment.
An ideal time to get started might be this low-cost, easy-to-start eco-friendly landscaping alternative: Mix clover into your existing turfgrass to create a multi-cultural garden.

Clover Lawns: Directions and Maintenance Tips

Do you want a greener, healthier lawn for your family and pets, that has many benefits for ecosystems and the environment?

A landscaped yard of white Dutch clover may be your answer!

Monitor existing lawns for best results.
The best time to plant is late spring to early summer.
Keep the soil moist until the seeds germinate. About 2 weeks of time is required. Some seeds germinate within 3-5 days.
Using the recommended cutting height—at least three inches—helps prevent weeds.
Fertilizing with fertilizer increases the growth rate.
Monitor and fertilize again in the fall.

It may take a few years to transform your garden, but it's worth the wait.
Historically, clover grew naturally on our lawns. The introduction and use of herbicides eliminated broadleaf weeds but also removed deep-rooted clovers.

Without clover to help absorb water, shallow-rooted lawns require more water to stay green. When herbicides remove weeds, the grass needs more water to keep the grass growing to fill the holes left by the weeds.
