Shane Coyle asked 12 years ago
I’m having a lot of trouble trying to establish my lawn its been planted three years now and has never really taken off. I have given it fertilizer twice this year (once weed and feed) but all I seem to be able to grow are mass bunches of clover and what appears to be shamrock with a yellow flower. What could be the problem. The lawn itself is very patchy and plants don’t seem to grow just germinate.

If you have a lot of clover persistently, it is a sign that you have well drained, probably sandy soil, as clover and shamrock thrive in such conditions.

Clover is fine in a lawn, as it is green but tends to be patchy.

The other althernative to have a green lawn is to feed more often.
