What is the best way to rid a yard of clover. It seems to be taking over the lawns in my area.
Mecoprop is normally what is used around here to control clover, but is usually mixed with 2-4D and dicamba. I have a lot of people asking me to seed some clover into their lawns because chinch bugs don't feed on clover.
Try a product called "Confront" - Lesco sells a brand called "momentum" that also works well on clover.
Virtually any weed and feed will get rid of clover fast. Are you sure it's clover and not oxalis? Oxalis is difficult to remove with weed and feeds.
Spray is most effective onthe small clover leaves. Granulars are useless.
Millennium is another one that will knock down the clover.
I think its Trimec Plus that will too.
Strike 3 also has dicamba and mecoprop and will knock out the clover.
grass guy it seems kind of odd to me that someone would seed clover in their lawn to protect from chinch bugs, why don't you treat with insecticide?
Most are treated with insecticide - those who ask for the clover do not want the insecticide. Different reasons for this - kids, shallow wells, pets, etc. It does not "protect" the lawn but the clover is still green when the chinch bugs are finished with the bluegrass.
I've had great luck this year with Speedzone killing the clover in my yards.
Clover is almost always green... not good for a very high maintenance turf, but it's less unsightly than some of the other weeds.
When cut, clover supposedly carries quite a bit of nitrogen when it breaks down.
