Want Your Clover to be OVER?
I have nothing against clover. In fact I kind of like the way it looks in a lawn and as an ex-beekeeper, I enjoy seeing the honey bees working the white flowers. However, over time clover can choke out your grass which can be ok if you want a clover lawn. However if clover is taking over your lawn this summer and you want to get rid of it, I have some good news. You can knock out clover and several other hard to kill lawn weeds like Wild Violet and Ground Ivy (Creeping Charlie) and Oxalis with Ortho Weed B Gon Chickweed, Clover and Oxalis Killer. You can use this spray on all lawns except St. Augustine, Centipede and Bermuda.
I used the Ortho Dial-N-Spray Hose End Sprayer to kill the clover in my neighbor’s yard several years back when I lived in Ohio (see photos). I stretched the hose to the farthest part of his lawn and then sprayed as I moved back toward the faucet. This product comes in a concentrate that will spray a 3,200 sq. ft. lawn area.
Once you get rid of your clover, if you begin to feed your lawn on a regular basis (every couple of months) your grass will become thicker and clover will have a tougher time coming back.
