Organic Lawn over-run by clover and dandelions
This is the second year we are using the organic step system from AGWAY. Unfortunately this year we are being over-run by first dandelions and now white clover. I know a lot of people think clover is OK but I hate the white flowers. You mow them over and the next day more white flowers. I read that I should have used corn gluten meal. I thought that by using the organic step system we didn't need to do additional things. So my question is what do I do now?
It's too late to spread the corn gluten meal right since the buggers are out already. Corn gluten meal only works to prevent new growing weeds. In addition our lawn looks pretty yellow now...not pretty and my husband is ready to quit the organic gardening.
We plan on getting compost from the city dump and spread a think layer of that and over seed this fall so we can't put corn gluten meal then. I will in the spring. Or can I plant the seeds early fall have them come up and then spread the corn gluten meal.
Will spreading corn meal NOT corn gluten meal help my lawn look more healthy now?
