Our lawn is healthy but has large patches of clover. What is the best way to remove the clover?

You can remove clover by spraying it with an herbicide that contains 2,4-D without damaging the turf. Clover is a persistent perennial and you may need an herbicide that contains 2 or more ingredients. This herbicide can also damage trees, shrubs and other perennials. The best time to spray is on a non-windy day when the temperatures are below 80.

Please read the label and follow all the directions.

Thank you very much for the quick response. I am on my way to find the proper herbicide.
