Growing Clover in Sandy Soil


tomb1996a@aol.com added on February 4, 2017 | Answered

I am in zone 9. I have several large trees and shade and it is sandy soil (100%). I cannot grow grass or just a couple of patches. Will clover grow in sandy soil to cover where I should have a lawn? Without going to a huge expense (I am renting) or do you have another suggestion?

There are varieties of Clover that can grow in sandy soil.
I would suggest you talk with your County Extension Office for a list of seeds that are suited for you region. They are a valuable resource and can help you with a soil test.
