Product Description

Our Microgreen 100% microclover can help you have a green lawn in every meaning of the word.  Adding clover, especially our special Microgreen microclover to your lawn will keep it greener during the summer with less water than your neighbors use, reduce fertilizer use, and eliminate the need for chemical weed killers because over time the clover will thicken up and crowd out weeds like dandelions.  

 How does Microclover Prevent Weeds?

You've heard that you should mow your grass tall to prevent weeds right?  One of the reasons that works is because the taller your grass is, the more it shades the soil.  If the soil is shaded, weed seeds have difficulty getting the sunlight they need to get established.  Well, what do you think is better at shading the soil - a skinny vertical blade of grass or a nice umbrella like clover leaf?  You guessed it, the clover leaf.  As a bonus, if you have microclover in your lawn, you can keep it a little bit shorter and still get excellent weed suppression.  Visit whygoodnature.com/microclover for more information. 

Overseeding Your Lawn with Microclover:

Our Microgreen Clover has a special coating that helps it get established and providing nitrogen to fertilize your lawn 6 - 9 months sooner than clover that isn't coated and inoculated with our special seed starter.  

Broadcasting microclover works much better than broadcasting regular grass seed.  Start by determining the square footage of the area you have to cover (www.findlotsize.com or just measure it out).  1 lb. of our Microgreen will cover 600 square feet.  If you'd like to see the clover establish more quickly you can spread it twice as heavy so that 1lb only covers 300 square feet.  Set your spreader on the lowest setting and cover the lawn once.  Repeat until you've spread the desired amount of seed.  

Starting a New Lawn with Microclover:

We don't recommend seeding microclover alone, it's best used along with grass.  If you're seeding a lawn from scratch (there is no grass there) we recommend seeding it along with our Tuff Turf for a low maintenance and attractive lawn.  You can seed the lawn normally with Tuff Turf at 10 lbs. / 1000 s.f. and then spread the microclover separately at 2 lbs. / 1000 s.f. 

Will it work in my area? 

If they do see regular clover growing then the Micro Clover should work. Also you can tell people that we have sold the Micro Clover to people all over the country (California, Florida, Texas, and NY) and in Canada and it seems to perform in all these climates.

Does it flower?

It flowers a lot less than Dutch White Clover. It does flower a little more in its second year, but overall it probably flowers about 90% less than regular white clover.

How big is it and/or how tall does it get? 

It is really about the size of white clover, but smaller than red hop clover. It can get about 6 to 8 inches tall on its own. In a lawn it gets mowed down, but if it is just Micro Clover it can get a little taller.

Can I just plant Micro Clover without grass?

The short answer is yes. We originally did not recommend this but some clients have done this with success. One I know of in New York and one in California. In general we suggest mixing it with grass for best results because the clover will recede over the winter and you might have mud.

Do you need to fertilize Micro Clover?

Not really. It is mostly self-fertilizing. We do recommend fertilizing your lawn if it is mixed in with Micro Clover to help the grass stay competitive with the Micro Clover.

How do I prep the soil?

If you have grass already mow it real short and scratch the area up some ( not too much is needed) Broadcast the seed  ( NOTE : THE SEED IS TEENY TINY AND IS PROBABLY BEST SPREAD BY HAND OR BY PUTTING YOUR SPREADER ON ITS SMALLEST OPENING)

The seed needs daily (or twice daily if real hot and dry) watering. Compost or straw is OK - but typically not necessary for the seed to germinate.

How long does the seed last?

If kept dry the seed will last past the sell by date. This is on the label and usually 12 to 18 months after tested.

Will the Micro Clover takeover my lawn?

The Micro Clover in general is more aggressive than grass and we therefore recommend still doing some fertilizer to help the grass stay competitive.

  1. Greened up my lawn and stoppped the weeds 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Feb 2014

    This is my second purchase of Microclover. Since seeding with it over a year ago, my lawn is thicker, greener, and now has very few weeds. Microclover gave me a great looking sustainable lawn without the use of expensive and dangerous chemicals.

  2. Microclover is a great solution to overfertilization and chemicals! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Oct 2013

    My first "crop" of microclover in the front yard is sprouting nicely. There is grass and other green ground cover there, too. I am anxious to see it next summer and show my neighbors how unnecessary and damaging to the environment thick grass lawns really are. I have purchased 10 lbs more for the rest of my yard.
