Front lawn at my own residence has been over run by clover. Whats my best bet for getting rid of it?
2-4d, but I have bermuda. You cant put this on all grass and I dont know what you have? 2-4d will kill it in like 2 to 3 days!
What specifically is 2-4d. H ave not heard of that?
Its a herbicide
You buy it at Lesco? home Depot?
Blue/rye mix , cool weather
2,4-d will not kill clover. You need a 3-way herbicide to get rid of clover. You should also fertilize your lawn as clover grows well in low nitrogen conditions. How are you going to apply the herbicide? I don't mean to be a jerk but you sound like a homeowner with little experience and I worry about you incorrectly applying the herbicide. If you go to a Lesco, which is really a John Deere Landscapes they should be able to help you out. Your best bet would be to hire a local professional to do the job and get advice.
Very familiar with JDL , I buy my seed and starter fert there . Im actualy an irrigation contractor , we also do a lot of areating / overseeding at the end of summer , so Im in Lesco quite a bit at that time.
On another note I also have quite a bit of African violet ( you guys may call it something else , not sure)
No wonder I still have clover in my back yard.
Which 3 way herbicide do you recommend?
Clover hates nitrogen rich soil, I would increase the nitrogen a little bit along with whichever herbicide you decide to use. 2,4D is a big ingredient in 3 way, and it does kill clover under the right conditions.
I would consider hiring a professional, they will know whats best for your specific area.
