Can anyone recommend a way to stop clover growth in a Bermuda grass lawn? I have tried a product called “ Weed stop,” but the clover seems to be completely unaffected. I have been keeping the turf mowed quite low, but the clover is out stripping the grass!

try to find a product with mcpp in it. 24d type products only have a limited effect on clover. pros use confront herbicide

Once again, thanks for the useful advice! Incidentally, do you have any idea where I can purchase Confront herbicide?

i don’t believe you can- it’s a licensed product for pros. you might try finding a product at a hardware or farm supply store. try a ag co-op place too.

oh yeah-you’ll want it as the side ingredient- it’s still mixed in with 24d/dicamba, the product you’re probably seeing at the hardware store
