Question: 75-5201
My lawn is being overcome by this three leafed weed with a little white flower. What can I do to get rid of it? Henry, Pawtucket, RI

Mort's Answer:
It looks like you have clover. In the fifties clover was added to lawn mixes to insure fertilization. Clover forms nitrates in the soil. If you fertilize with a high nitrogen fertilizer, the clover will disappear. It's what I call a martyr grass.
