What are your thoughts on clover planting on residential vacant lots?

Asked November 24, 2015, 1:20 PM EST

Wouldn't white clover become a problem eventually as an invasive into neighboring lawns?

Although white clover is a good alternative for lawns with many attributes including drought tolerance, low cost, weed resistant, et al., for many it is considered a weed. If a planting is close to a highly manicured lawn it may not be appropriate since it would probably invade that lawn.
