Microclover lawn?

4 years ago

We recently bought a house that has a lot of grass in the front yard. To water, mow and maintain this is not going to be ideal in the long run and I'd like to create something lower maintenance that has a similar visual appeal. I've thought about a microclover lawn but am curious what the realities of this are.

Has anyone tried this? Is it indeed easier to maintain? Any drawbacks? If I introduce microclover seed will it eventually push out the existing lawn if I don't water as much, or would I need to tear out the existing lawn and replant just microclover seed?
