    My lawn is slowing being taken over by clover and am looking for advice on how to get rid of it. Last summer I put down a granular by LESCO that got some of it but by no means got all of it. What time of year is best to get clover? What product(s) works best?

    2,4-D will work on it. It'll make it look funny too.:D

    Be careful when applying it, make sure you read and follow the label directions, yada, yada, yada....

    Make the whole yard clover. It looks great when its in bloom.

    Excellent stuff...if your customer can take having a clover yard....Bees and other bugs love the stuff too.

    When I was a youth and my dad let me help install lawns [i.e. rake stone] most lawns were seeded with a mix that included a clover, dwarf white I think. I don't know when that practice ended or if it was just a local thing.
