significant weed common to lawns and landscapes throughout Canada and
the United States, White Clover is a perennial used for pastureland
grazing. It grows quickly during cool, moist weather, but because of
its shallow root zone, does poorly in dry conditions. White clover is
easily identifiable by its 3 leaf stems and white flowers.
Clover can be controlled with a broadleaf weed control product.
Generally 2 to 3 applications, followed by proper cultural practices
can keep White Clover from appearing in your lawn. A regular fertilizer
program, combined with weekly watering and using a mowing height of 2
½ to 3 inches will create a thick, vigorous lawn which will
help to prevent the germination of White Clover and other seeds that
may blow in from the surrounding areas.
