Answer: You can plant the clover in your bank two ways; the complete replacement way or gradually. To completely redo the bank, spray an herbicide to kill the lawn grass and then about one month later break up the sod and plant clover throughout the whole area. The only problem with this method is erosion may happen while you wait for the clover to get established so you may need to lay down some mesh netting to hold the seed and soil until they start growing. The gradual method is to dig out clumps of the grass every few feet or so, seed the clover in those areas and let it naturally start taking over. The clover is more aggressive than the lawn grasses and will eventually fill the whole area. You might also consider crownvetch as a crop to use in that situation.
