"Update: y'all were right," the OP wrote above the photos before adding, "No reseeding required and hopefully getting flowers soon!"

Fellow Redditors were blown away by the stunning lawn and eager to transform their own yards.

"Ooh you've inspired me!" one user commented. "I've got a huge bag of red clover seed to sow this weekend!"

"That looks so good!!!" another wrote. "I hope mine comes out even half as good as yours!"

Clover is a flowering plant that is a great lawn alternative because of its drought-resistant and heat-tolerant properties. It's also pest- and disease-resistant, suppressing weed growth and preventing stubborn critters from wreaking havoc in your yard. By adding clover to your lawn, you won't have to rely on harsh chemical-based herbicides and pesticides that can actually cause more harm than good

Switching to a native plant lawn, such as clover, is also an effective way to save time and money on maintenance. When you install a native plant lawn, you can save $275 on water, $50 on fertilizer, and $50 on pesticides and weed control each year. 

Unlike traditional grass lawns, native plant lawn alternatives do not require maintenance from gas-powered lawnmowers, which emit harmful pollutants that contribute to the planet's rising temperatures. As a result, switching to a native plant lawn allows you to stop using gas-powered mowers and significantly reduce your environmental footprint.
