Lawns/Getting rid of clover

Question
I live in south Louisiana. I have patches of clover in the front and back yard. What is the best way to get rid of it? The yard is not very big so it really stands out. Thank you for your help.

Answer
It depends entirely on the grass you have.
2.4D will kill most broad-leaf weeds but it is harmful - even deadly - to some lawn grasses.
Other products have similar limitations
Some may have a "Restricted" labeling.
Be very careful because "Weedkillers do not forgive".
