How to Kill Clove

Getting rid of this weed can be a very stressful task, and keeping it gone can be an even more difficult.

Step 1

Use a selective broadleaf herbicide that contains MCPP or dicamba. It can isolate the clove and prevent it from damaging the rest of your garden. Do not remove the cloves manually, as it will not help with preventing regrowth and will only prolong the effort it takes to kill the weeds.

Step 2

Cut the grass. It is important to maintain the grass in your yard or garden at a consistent 2 to 3 inches. This will keep clove weed from reemerging.

Step 3

Plant grass seeds in place of the clove previously removed and fertilize regularly. This will ensure no more clove will spread in that area of the yard. It would also be a good idea to reapply the herbicides once a month to assist in the prevention of any potential regrowth.


There are benefits to having clove weed in your garden. For example, clove weed provides nitrogen, which enriches the health of the plant life around it, but too much can make the yard look unkept and give it an inconsistency in color throughout, which is why many people choose to remove it as opposed to manage it.


Avoid using a nonselective herbicide to kill clove weed; but if you must use it, plan to not fertilize your yard for at least 10 days after applying the treatment.
