Is this a good option to conserve water, save on gasoline (for mowers), and have a greener lawn in times of drought? We live in the Detroit, MI area.

Dutch White Clover grows about 5" tall so won't need regular mowing. It is relatively heat and drought tolerant but you may need to water during the height of the summer heat, depending upon how well your soil holds moisture. Aside from the above, clover is a great alternative to turfgrasses. Hope this information is helpful.
