Hello Toby, my name is Padraic and I am in Saginaw MI zone 5b - 6a I think. My question is pertaining to fall planted clover being compatible with sheet mulching? The city lot we are working with was devoid of life and so we imported stable bedding and tilled in to get a good jump on organic amendments early on in the year. As I'm sure you can imagine the weeds were outrageous. We employed a slash and drop method with them though to maintain soil cover (Making the best of a bad) The weeds keep coming though and I know we need to employ a solid sheet mulch but I was wondering if we could lay down the sheet mulch and then sow clover immediately following initial warm up. Do you think the clover would benefit from the processes underneath the surface or would it be too intense throughout the winter?
 
Yes, my master! Here is the tiny ad you asked for:
