How to Kill Clove Weed

Overview

Clove weed or clover grass is a weed that's common in northern parts of the United States. It ranges from light green to dark green and grow in uneven patches. Most homeowners are eager to get rid of clove weed, and it isn't difficult to eliminate it if you take the proper steps.

Step 1

Apply a chemical or synthetic herbicide to get rid of clove weed. Use a "broadleaf" herbicide and spray only on the clove weeds and not on the lawn. Contents of a chemical or a synthetic herbicide usually include dicamba or MCPP, and more than one application is necessary to get rid of the weeds.

Step 2

Spray vinegar on clove weeds. Take care not to spray vinegar on other plants and the lawn. Repeat the process a few times to ensure the best results.

Step 3

Mow your lawn regularly to about 2 to 3 inches tall. Fertilizing the lawn regularly also helps the growth of "good grass" that naturally tends to kill all weeds, keeping your lawn free from clove weed.
