Clover

I've got heaps of clover in my lawn & used to use a chemical spray to control them. Is there an alternative?

It depends on what kind of clover, and what kind of lawn. Spraying with vinegar is one alternative. It will kill the leaves off the clover and the grass alike.  If your lawn is one which grows back up from below-ground stems (like couch, kikuyu or buffalo grass) then the brown patch caused by the vinegar will green up again quite quickly.

I like clover in a lawn, it hosts nitrogen-fixing bacteria and fertilises the soil.

I recommend to remove weeds.  When the temperature is more than 25 degrees avoid spraying the lawn. In winter you can spray when growing of turf is decrease. Always follow the instruction that are given on container.
