Fighting Clover Weed

rain, trefoil, clover

The most common type of clover is the white clover, a member of the legume family. It produces its own nitrogen, which means that it will thrive in under-nourished lawns. The nitrogen it brings into the soil encourages grass growth when it decomposes. Some homeowners may like clover growing in their lawn, others may want to control it because they think it looks messy or are concerned about their children being stung by bees.
