ysmad Green Tip:

Don't worry about clover on your lawn

rabbit, cloverAccording to the National Geographic Magazine 09/2008 (p. 144) clover was once part of commercial grass seed mixtures and was just made a "weed" by marketing of a pesticide company. NG even suggests to plant clover, as it can store nitrogen and release it to the soil better than synthetic fertilizers. And besides - we liked the rabbit sitting every morning in _our_ clover-patch last year :-)
