Clover Lawn. Why Not?

Doesn't need to be watered.
Adds nitrogen to the soil.
Can tolerate drought and won't turn brown.
A good control for other weeds.
Attracts butterflies and bees.
Dogs can pee on it and it won't turn brown.
Most clovers are low growing so you don't have to mow as much.

This was a tiny clover patch last year but it is spreading nicely.I just mow around it to keep the flowers intact that the bees love so much.


  1. I've thought about this but being allergic to bees kind of throws a wrench in it. Great to see, I look forward to the evolution of it!

  2. It is tricky when allergies are involved. There are alternatives to clover for a natural lawn. I haven't looked into it but I bet a natural garden centre would have some ideas.
