Weed Wednesday: Clover
Happy Weed Wednesday! Although this weed had been a symbol of good luck for centuries, it does not give your lawn much luck. You guessed it, Clover.
Clover is a perennial weed that although was desired in home lawns before World War 2 now has become a common nuisance. While there are several different types of clover, the most common one is white clover. Although the root system does not reach very deep into the soil, the stems of this weed will grow along the surface of the ground.
It typically will crowd out other broadleaf weeds and because it is a prolific grower, can often times outcompete your desirable grass.
It also tends to be drought-tolerant and virtually immune to disease. There are many reasons why this weed may favor your lawn and grow, such as unbalanced pH soil levels, lack of necessary nutrients, unmaintained grass, and soil compaction. But don’t worry, you are in luck.
