Has anyone tried an alternative lawn using Dutch clover or microclover?

RE: clover lawns

It is rare to find adventuresome people on this forum. Mostly they want to know how to get rid of clover in the lawn; however, I have recommended it to people who seem to be open to the idea. When clover is sowed for full coverage, it looks much more attractive than when it enters the yard in patches. Clover is also very good for the soil. If you mow at the mower's highest setting you will need very little water and no fertilizer at all.

I'm interested!
I have a mixed zoysia and St. Augustine lawn in Augusta, GA.
Would it work to overseed with mini or micro clover? Will they survive our summer?

RE: clover lawns

We have a mix of clover and grass. We like it. The only issue with clover is that it crawls sideways, so it takes maintenance to keep it out of flower beds. The edging (buried plastic with bricks on the inside edge) does a fine job of keeping out grass, but the clover goes right over the top of the edging. IME clover looks better than grass when the moisture level is borderline.
