Re: Clover lawn idea maybe
Twice I have tried to grow white clover...both times proved unsuccessful. The first time I threw it all around the yard about 1 week into an 8-weeks-long drought. I think that explains that. The second time, however, I should like to think I was a bit wiser, and worked my timing out a bit better. Still, nothing long-term. I did have spots of it, but they've all but died off.
I'm not sure what the trick is, presuming there IS a trick. But as badly as I wanted it, and considering the amount of money I put out, I just could not make it work.
From what I researched, there's a lot to be said for white clover, as others have mentioned. I liked it simply because I wouldn't have to waste time, money and energy on a yard that would win "The World's Least-Seen Lawn" contest.
