I have clover patches growing around my yard and wanted to get the huddle green thumbs opinions on the best way to kill it off.

I've been told Weed and Feed but have no real experience in lawn-care besides mowing and weed whackign

I've had some good results with bayer advanced season long weed control for lawns.

The name is deceiving though, it most assuredly does not last all season.

I've dealt with this issue before. The common theme I run across is you have to replace the clover with grass. Overseed and fertilize the clover areas and grass should just replace the clover. Doesn't make a lot of sense, but I've seen it work.

I alternate between Spectracide (which is the only one that I can find for centipedegrass) and Bayer. It does take a few applications a week or so apart...which I can't do right now since I'm reseeding this weekend.

Bayer is the devil. All of you are vile people for supporting them, I just wanted you to know. Sell your souls for a pretty lawn, for shame!!
