Clover weed control services offered to homes, businesses, and HOAs in Allentown, Bethlehem, and nearby Pennsylvania cities.
Our weed control treatments will kill off clover so that it does not take over your grass.
While many think of clover as lucky thanks to St. Patrick's Day and the ever-evasive four-leaf clover, you are actually unlucky if you have a lot of it in your lawn. Clover can come back year after year without weed control treatments and destroy your grass in the process.
Our company offers clover weed control services for HOAs, businesses, and homes in Bethlehem, Allentown, Emmaus, and other areas of the Lehigh Valley in Pennsylvania.
Conditions that Contribute to Clover Growth
If clover begins to invade your yard, it is generally because there are certain conditions in your lawn that are contributing to an environment that encourages their growth, such as:
- Your soil pH may need to be adjusted. If grass isn't growing and clover is, then the pH may be too low or too high.
- The grass was cut too short. When grass is cut too closely, it weakens the structure of the blades making the grass more likely to fall victim to weeds.
- The grass is not getting enough water. If there is not enough water, the grass becomes stressed and less strong.
- Your soil may be heavily compacted. Clover can grow in almost any condition, even when soil is hardened.
- Your soil does not have enough nutrients. Clover plants will pop up in soil that is low on nitrogen.
Clover is a perennial plant, so it will come back each year without treatment or adjusting your lawn care practices.
How to Identify & Remove Clover
In Pennsylvania, we have white clover. They have three leaves and white flowers grow from the plant. These summer-blooming flowers attract bugs that can sting you, so be careful around them.
People often mistake clover for other weeds like black medic and oxalis plants, which look similar in structure but have yellow flowers. Clover weeds are more of a teardrop shape, while oxalis leaves are heart-shaped.
Getting rid of clover can be done with weed control treatments, but a much more permanent solution is to fix the conditions that made clover come into your yard in the first place. Our lawn care professionals can assess your yard's overall health and devise a plan to correct soil pH and nutrient imbalance so that clover will not come back into your lawn each year.
