Clover tends to populate lawns on fast-draining light soil, and lawns that have not been fed.

Generally clover does not become a problem for a year or two. 

If you want to get rid of it, spray in May with a lawn weedkiller containing the active ingredient mecoprop.

And feed the lawn more with lawn fertilizer.
