    Our yard is starting to get overrun with clover. What's the best way to get rid of it?

    Earl May broadleaf killer is death on the stuff, also kills platain, crabgrass, thistle, etc etc. Do you have them up in Canada?

    Edit: Earl May stores, not plantain, thistle, etc.

    Agree with James, Surge is a great product. Also, clover can be a good sign of a low N level in the soil. just a thought

    There probably is a bit of a low nitrogen level, but the main issue is the neighbour a few doors down who has let his lawn get totaly infested and is letting is spread across the block :(

    Any of the broadleaf weed killers from the big box stores will pretty much get rid of them in a couple of days.

    Mix up in a spray tank and hit them early in the AM when there's some dew on the leaves still. Make sure it's on a day when no rain is forecast and temperatures are under 80*F.
