DUTCH WHITE CLOVER

White Clover seed is an excellent option to incorporate into the lawn . Its ability to withstand heavy foot traffic and low growth habit make it an ideal addition to any lawn. The dense, green foliage of White Clover creates a lush and vibrant appearance, enhancing the overall aesthetic of the lawn.

One of the key benefits of using white Dutch clover in lawns is its ability to fix nitrogen. Nitrogen is an essential nutrient for plant growth and white Dutch clover has the unique ability to convert atmospheric nitrogen into a usable form for plants. This means that as clover grows, it naturally enriches the soil with nitrogen, providing a sustainable source of nutrients for the surrounding grass.

Additionally, it also acts as a natural weed suppressant. Clover's dense growth habit and vigorous root system create a dense mat that helps smother and outcompete weeds. This means that by incorporating White Clover into your lawn, you can reduce the need for chemical herbicides and promote a healthier, weed-free environment.
