Any ideas? It is spreading from what used to be one little area, and is becoming big patches throughout the lawn. I want to get rid of it as naturally as possible before it gets even more out of control.

PLEASE help me.

TIA

I hear you. My yard is all clover, so far I have been stung, my 2 year old has been stung, and the boy across the street has been stung.
My land lord does all the yard work and I think she likes the flowers I did think if i killed it off she would have to plant grass right?
I don't know but I'll keep reading!

I'm not sure what to tell you regarding getting rid of it but I can mention a psoitive side of having it! It is a great necter source for honey bees and clover honey is really wonderful.

My dh, the lawn freak, gets down in his crouch position and pulls each little clover out by the roots as soon as he spots it. Anything that is not an authentic blade of grass gets pulled immediately, and we have a .5 acre lawn! Because of his diligence, we never have much of a weed problem...I don't know what to tell you about large patches unless you have a few days to spend pulling by hand (yeah, right!). Good luck!
