Say Goodbye to Clover Without the Chemicals

Clover can be beneficial to having a lush, green lawn. It delivers key nutrients to the soil and is beneficial to pollinators. But if you're constantly battling persistent clover and it’s winning the battle for your lawn, you may want to get rid of it. Thankfully, there's a natural solution to clover: Iron. Weed sprays containing FeHEDTA (iron) control clover and contain no harsh chemicals. FeHEDTA is formulated to create an iron toxicity in broadleaf weeds, while leaving your desirable turf unharmed. 

Clover Thrives in Moderate Temperatures:

Clover, with its resilient nature and adaptability, thrives in spring-like temperatures. It's during this time that clover tends to take root and spread across lawns, creating an patchwork of green that will put up unsightly flowers in June and July. To combat this tenacious intruder effectively, you need a solution that specifically targets clover while being gentle on your grass.

Enter FeHEDTA:

FeHEDTA products offer a winning formula for tackling clover infestations. It is a selective herbicide that specifically targets broadleaf weeds like clover while preserving the health and vitality of your grass. Here's why it's an excellent choice for weed control:

  1. Effective clover eradication: FeHEDTA products are specially formulated to eliminate clover without harming your lawn. The herbicide effectively disrupts the growth and development of clover, inhibiting its ability to thrive. With consistent applications, you can bid farewell to clover patches and reclaim a uniform, pristine lawn.
  2. Ideal for cool temperatures: Unlike some herbicides that are temperature-sensitive, FeHEDTA works efficiently in cooler climates. This means you can confidently tackle clover infestations during spring or fall, when temperatures are not extreme. Aim for early mornings or evenings to spray.
  3. Nurturing Your Grass: While the primary goal is clover eradication, FeHEDTA products are designed to minimize the impact on your grass. This selective herbicide targets broadleaf weeds while leaving your grass unharmed, allowing it to flourish. This means you can enjoy a beautiful, weed-free lawn without sacrificing the health and aesthetics of your turf.

How to Use FeHEDTA Effectively:

To make the most of an iron based product, follow these guidelines:

  1. Read and Follow Instructions: Carefully read and follow the product label instructions. This ensures you apply the correct dosage and timing for maximum effectiveness and safety.
  2. Proper Application: Apply the herbicide evenly across your lawn, focusing on areas with clover infestations. Pay attention to coverage and avoid overspray on walkways or patios, as it can stain hard surfaces.
  3. Timing is Key: Moderate temperatures provide an ideal window for using FeHEDTA. Aim for a time when the temperature ranges between 50°F and 75°F for optimal results.
  4. Patience and Persistence: Within a week, you'll notice the clover turning a dark brown and eventually black and drying out. Remember that weed control is an ongoing process. Multiple applications may be necessary to completely eradicate clover. Be patient - it may take a couple rounds, but you'll get it all eventually!
