Too Much Luck Finding Clover in Your Lawn?
Tradition tells us that four-leaf clovers are lucky. However, if you find clover in your lawn, you’re likely to feel anything but fortunate. It can be difficult to rid your grass of this pesky weed. That’s why you need the assistance of a professional Texas lawn maintenance company. Regardless of where you live in the greater Dallas/Fort Worth area, give us a call to get a clover-free yard.
Clover is a hardy, perennial weed that is frequently found in Texas lawns. The easiest way to tell if you’re dealing with this weed is by looking for the spiky, white blooms. These blossoms attract bees, so you’re likely to see increased bee activity in your yard. Clover seeds thrive in weak, nitrogen-deficient grass. Many homeowners who haven’t fertilized in a few seasons or haven’t been using the right fertilizer are likely to see clover taking over their lawn. The good news is that there are ways to fight clover and win.
Clover grows low to the ground and has a relatively shallow root system. This means that hand pulling can be an effective method of mitigating the situation. Of course, it pays to be thorough. If you leave even a small portion of the roots behind, your clover problem will crop right back up again. It may make sense to treat it with an herbicide as well. Unfortunately, many of the herbicides that are available at home improvement stores aren’t particularly effective when it comes to getting rid of clover. That’s why many people prefer to call in professionals to use their tried-and-true methods for clover removal like pre-emergent control.
While it is relatively easy to get rid of existing these weeds, it can be much more difficult to get rid of the seeds. Seeds of this weed can live through temperature extremes, drought and just about everything else. This means that the problem can come back year after year. The best way to prevent this cycle is by having routine lawn maintenance performed by a professional. When your lawn is thick and healthy, seeds won’t be able to germinate. Eventually, you will see the beautiful, weed-free lawn that you deserve.
