For Lawns





No other plant of the clover family is so frequently sown

when making lawns. For such a use it is not sown alone, but is always

the complement of Kentucky blue grass or of a mixture of grasses. No two

plants can be singled out that are more suitable for lawn making than

white clover and Kentucky blue grass. Both are fine in their habit of

growth. The two in conjunction usually make a more dense sward than

either alone, and the clover will grow and produce many flowers, if not

kept clipped too closely when the blue grass is resting in midsummer.



As lawns are usually small, and a dense sward is desired as quickly as

it can be obtained; the seed should be sown thickly on lawns, at the

rate of not less than 5 pounds of seed to the acre. The early spring is

the best time for sowing the seed, but in mild climates it may be sown

at almost any season that may be convenient, providing the ground is

moist enough to germinate the seed. In cold climates, the seed should

be sown not later than August, unless when sown too late for autumn

germination. This in some instances may not only be proper, but

commendable.
