White Clover


LawnSite Member
I would like to know why anyone would seed white clover into their turf ?

I see packages of white clover seeds with lawn seeds claiming it is for natural lawns , whatever that means. Is it just used for greening locations that don't need any maintenance like on highways and ditches ?

that used to be what the primo lawns had in it until herbicides. clover takes nitrogen from the atmosphere and makes it available to the grass plant naturally. it is a good low mainentance lawn if you don't mind the white flowers and bees.
