About two weeks ago, I removed the small clover patch on the front lawn. I do not want it to grow unsightly and out of control. It was not a big loss for I still have two huge patches of clovers in the back yard. One in front of the shed and another next to the wild flowers and fruits trees.
Clover flowers are loved by honey bees, butterflies and many other beneficial insects. Clover roots turn nitrogen into fertilizer. That is why the grass which grow amongst or near a clover patch are often healthier and more robust than those elsewhere. Being drought resistant, clover patches stay green even when the rest of your lawn turn brown!
Thus, I am keeping the two clover patches. It is a joy feeding the honey bees, and seeing little critters hopping from one white flower to the next. I do not need my lawn to look like a golf terrain… how boring is that?!
