This is  common weed pest. Personally I would just forget it since it looks green. Often times proper watering and fertilizing will help the lawn crowd out the clover. Your other option is to spray the clover with a lawn weed control product such as Weed B Gone and after the weeds have died go back and replant new grass either by seed or buy squres of turf already pregrwn.

I never worry about clover..........we need that for the bees to feed on to go from tree to tree and from plant to plant.....I don't like to use chemicals where people will bring it into your home on your shoes....not safe for children & pets.

If you have fruit trees or berry bushes, you might want to keep the clover.  The bees love them .  You also could use a lawn bag to use in that area to keep them from spreading.  If your neighbors have them you will get them again.
