Subsequently, one may also ask, when should clover be mowed?
Regular mowing clover plots back to 6 inches is suggested to keep a constant supply of fresh, young, tender greens. Clover responds to mowing with aggressive growth. Mowing is fine in spring and early summer but is not generally a good idea during the hot summer season. Clover likes cool temps and plenty of rain.
Similarly, what kind of clover is best for lawns? "Dutch" or "New Zealand" white clover are the best varieties for lawns because they are low-growing and blend well with lawn grasses. Like many species in the legume family, clovers are known for adding nitrogen to the soil, reducing the need to apply fertilizer to a lawn.
Herein, how do you kill clover without killing grass?
There is an exciting new organic weed killer on the market for killing weeds in your lawn without killing the grass. If you spray this new organic weed killer (Adios) on the clover in the grass, it will weaken the clover without harming the grass and give your grass the advantage it needs to outcompete the clover.
Is Clover better than grass?
Clover can thrive in low fertility soils. In fact, clover in a lawn is often a sign of low nitrogen levels in soil because it does so much better than grasses. Since it is nitrogen fixating, it can supply its own nutrients.
