Is clover a bad idea? We’ve tried for years to get grass to grow in our lawn. Long story short, it only works in some areas, not all – and so we have some beautiful sections of lawn surrounded by small patches that don’t grow. We’re sick of spending the time/money to keep trying and just want something low maintenance instead. Would clover work? Or should we assume if the grass won’t grow, the clover won’t either? Thanks
Clover is often used in difficult location. I have to wonder why you haven’t been able to grow grass. Perhaps the soil is very acidic and you need to do a soil pH test and apply lime. Even clover will struggle to grow in the area if the pH is very low (high acid). Before giving up I’d do a pH test to see if that is a problem.
