Why is clover grass seen as an enemy to a front lawn? The clover is really quite green and lovely as opposed to the grass next to it.
Our grass never really grows. It is either dead or dominated by ugy weeds here in Houston. I think it is a complete waste of time to install a sprinkler system that waters grass. Everyone should be watering only flowers and gardens with vegetables. We spent over $500 on grass sod after moving in and now our yard is dead. My neighbors spend at least $100 on fertilizer and weed killer every year not including what they end up paying on their water bill. Besides, it is too hot in Houston in the summer time to even go out and sit on the grass.
I like the clover. It is the only thing that is green and kind of flowery growing in our front yard. We are following the rules set out by our homeowners association and pulling up the green clover so that our green lawn can sprout anew. The grass never sprouts. The weeds sprout and we spend the summer mowing weeds.
I like the green clover. I wish my lawn was covered with the stuff.
