Clover is a pervasive weed that produces a thick ground cover with white or red flowers in the spring. Finding a four-leaf clover is said to bring luck to a person. but unfortunately, many homeowners experience bad luck when clover overtakes their lawns. Although a broad leaf herbicide will kill most clover, it will also kill all the grass and plants around it. It’s possible, however, to get rid of clover without harming other vegetation.


Step One

Wait until early spring and fill a drop spreader with corn gluten meal powder. Adjust the handle on the spreader so that it dispenses the powder at a rate of 20 lbs. per 1,000 feet.


Step Two

Position the drop spreader on the ground containing the clover problem. Push down on the lever, located near the handle, to start the flow of corn gluten meal through the drop spreader.


Step Three

Push the drop spreader over the surface of the lawn until the entire area is covered in corn gluten meal.


Step Four

Water the area thoroughly with a garden hose or sprinkler system to dissolve the corn gluten into the soil. It's fine if not all of the powder dissolves.


Step Five

Wait until mid-August and reapply the corn gluten meal in the same amount that you used in the spring. This second application prevents any clover seeds left in the ground from germinating.
