The Benefits of a Clover Lawn Eco-Friendly Lawn Alternative

Before the 1950′s, clover was considered an essential and desired part of lawns. Then 2,4D broadleaf killer came on the market and smart marketing by the chemical companies influenced homeowners that anything but grass in their lawn was a weed. Clover’s benefits include high drought tolerance and nitrogen fixation – which make for an attractive and low maintenance “green” green lawn – no chemicals or fertilizer needed.
