How do you get rid of white clover?

Recommended Posts

Brent_Baumer
Quite a lot of my yard is being taken over by white clover. Tried generic brand weed-n-feed last year on it with little effect. Worked well as fertilizer and ok on dandelions but did not affect the clover at all. Don't really want to fertilize this late in the season as dry weather will surely be here soon. Also, I mow often enough as it is and don't really want the grass to grow any faster. I have no crabgrass or any other weeds. Just nice bluegrass and white clover. I don't really care to see all those little white flowers that have cropped up the last couple of weeks. Any suggestions? Thanks, Brent.

I use only one brand SCOTTS !!! they have the best product, where applied, no dandelions ever came up and no weeds, I recomend it, try weed and feed and you will be very happy with the results, use the 5 step program and you won't be unsatisfied, thanks,-BradW

I think I'll try the 2,4D this weekend and maybe some weed-b-gone (unless it's the same stuff) in two different areas and see which works the best, or at all. The resident horticulturalist at work say clover is resistant to most herbicides, except those that kill everyting like roundup.
