White Clover (Trifolium Repens) like other legumes captures nitrogen from the air and add it to the soil providing for its own nitrogen needs and contributes significantly to the needs of the lawn grasses.

To help reduce white clover in lawns, mow the grass at the highest recommended height to shade out white clover. Check also suggested Fall Lawn Care

The best, and quickest way is by use of weed control chemicals. 2-4-D or Weed-b-Gone type products. Clover does tend to shed water, so by adding a spreader/sticker to the mix before spraying. If you don't happen to have a spreader sticker, you can add a couple of tea spoons of ordinarly dish soap to a gallon of spray mix. This will help break the surface tension of the mixture and allow it to stick better to the plant.
