    Any one seeing a lot of clover this year? I'm in Southern Middle Tennessee and I have never seen as much. Grass is growing like crazy here because of the rain. It won't be long and the crabgrass will take over. <a ='http://www.smileycentral.com/?partner=ZSzeb008' target='_blank'><img src='http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/4/4_1_72.gif' border=0></a>

    Lotsa' clover down here, too. Looks like crap. I don't know how to get rid of it. Maybe someone here will have some tips.

    Apps to control broadleaf weeds would help. Also, clover grows best in lawns that lack nitrogen.

    I spray for weeds with par III or Tri kill and then fertalize the next week. Works pretty good to keep the grass nice.

    I always get lots of yellow clover. Its a never ending problem.

    Par III and Tri kill have 2,4-d, Mecoprop and dicamba. Works great.
