We have a small country property and would like to promote clover in the yard around our house and other outbuildings. There is approximately 3 acres of land for this project. The property is on Plymouth Drive, which is mostly surrounded by grass fields. Our objectives would be to replace the current "lawn" (not really a lawn, more of a field) with clover to support bee population and soil health as well as minimizing water use (we rarely water the grass anyway) and pesticide use (never, actually). Anyway, I am looking for some advice on whether or not this will work and, if so, some input on how to go about this. Since our property doubles as an equine installation, we have access to lots of composted horse manure and a smaller amount of worm castings. We would welcome a visit from one of your knowledgeable agents, if that is something your service supports.
Ok, thanks for the info. I guess I will abandon the idea entirely. One thing that stands out though: I looked up the grasses you suggested as alternatives and both seem to classified as weeds. Certainly, I am not inclined to plant weeds in my yard. I guess I will just let what is there grow and deal with it.
