Micro Clover

(Question)

My question is about micro clover and how resilient it is, would it be able to withstand or bounce back from a car parking on it?

 

(Answer)

Thank you for contacting Toronto Master Gardeners. Whether micro clover bounces back after parking a car on it depends on how long the car is parked on it. Clover is less resistant to trampling than grass which is why it is recommended that micro clover be grown in combination with grass.  A vehicle parked on grass for any lengthy period will compact the soil and will likely kill the grass underneath. This would probably happen in the case of micro clover as well.
