I agree, I can handle the clover but Creeping Charlie is another matter. I broke down and sprayed last fall because it was taking over my flower beds but normally I don't use chemicals.
Six Good Reasons White Clover Is Not a Weed
1.It's low growing and needs little mowing.
2.It's evergreen even in the coldest climates.
3.It's drought tolerant, requiring little if any supplemental water once established.
4.It's a fertilizer factory for grass and other plants since clover has the ability to store atmospheric nitrogen in its root systems.
5.It masks the presence of other weeds in the lawn.
6.It resists insects and diseases, especially the white grubs that can be a major lawn nemesis.
