Hi Paul... I am the girl who planted cow peas on her front lawn and got the neighbors all in a frenzy!! Well we then seeded and the mix i bought was a high quality mix but with a bit of clover. Well......the clover completely took overthis summer. Personally I don't think it's all that bad. It's green and soft and requires little mowing. BUT the neighbors have gotten their drawers in a bunch again and I would like to reduce the clover to a more manageable ratio in the grass. Is it possible to remove most of it without chemicals? I have a pretty big lawn by the way... Please help!! i APPRECIATE IT.
So I assume i should use a high nitrogen ratio fertilizer? I have a bag of pro-grow 5-3-4 but I notice others with higher nitrogen content. Also no rush, but when will I notice results? Is my grasss just hiding in the clover somewhere? The lawn really is basically a field of clover! Thanks again for your great help.

Where do I fit something like corn gluten meal for the weeds in?
barely any grass...this is what I seeded the new lawn with but it also had a small amount of clover which I thought would be nice but I guess I did something wrong since the whole lawn is pretty much a clover field. So the ringer stuff youl like sounds right in its formulation. Just can't seem to find it in the Big stores, gonna have to order online.

i am in east central PA. the deswcription said this blend was engineered for organic lawn care- to stand up without the chemicals it had the fescue in it so I thought itwas a good choice. No? aaargh.....
