Clover does not always equal luck, especially to homeowners who value an even, uniform lawn featuring thick, green grass. To them, clover is a weed that chokes out the grass and creates patches of darker green foliage. While a chemical approach works best, there are natural ways to try and eradicate clover, particularly by using corn gluten meal. Before chalking it up to bad luck, here is a great way to eradicate clover without sacrificing your grass.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Spread 4.54 Kilogram of corn gluten meal per 1,000 square feet. Not only will corn gluten meal serve as a natural herbicide, preventing the clover seeds from growing and spreading, it is also a natural fertiliser and will not harm kids, pets and other living things.

  2. 2

    Repeat the corn gluten meal spreading process every 120 days, beginning in early spring when lawn vegetation is most responsive.

  3. 3

    Mow your lawn frequently, keeping the grass at a length of 2 to 3 inches to keep clover from growing as well. If small patches of clover continue to sprout up, they can be pulled by hand.
