Yes that’s right I have clover growing on my lawn and I am happy about it!
Despite what the chemical and pesticide industry wants you to think, white clover is actually good for your lawn.
Paul Tukey was here in Houston this past weekend speaking at the OHBA Organic Landscaping and Gardening Fair. He got me all fired up about the pesticide and herbicide industry. The runoff from synthetic chemicals being dumped on our lawns it causing BIG problems. Storm sewers send run-off directly into our rivers and streams.
Safelawns.org has some helpful videos to watch to learn how to get your lawn off drugs, make it a friendly place for children and pets, and stop the runoff that is destroying our waterways. Residential lawns account for 20% of all the damage from runoff.
Before you put anything on your lawn – visit safelawns.org and learn the truth about what companies like Scotts and Monsanto are doing to the environment. I highly recommend reading Paul Tukey’s book, The Organic Lawn Care Manual: A Natural, Low-Maintenance System for a Beautiful, Safe Lawn.
