I dont do this often, however I need some help. Im trying to help a friend out with (this mess another landscaper) left! How would you guys deal with this, my two questions are A. how should i get rid of all this clover (the green stuff is clover) and B. how do you suggest getting grass replanted? There is already top soil on the lawn. ?

Buy the looks i guessing its a new house. When they back filled they did not bother to put straw down. The rain splashes the dirt and in turn stains the brick. I dont think it can be washed off. I put straw down by a new house before for the same reason.

If it were me

I would till it rake it out for best results add top soil. Than plant grass seed.

Do a soil test add whats need.

IF tilling is further than you want to go, take a soil test, then power rake it and overseed.

Ya that stuff is not available to all states because of some herbicides and pesticides bans.

Remember, clover is a sign of low fertility. Something with triclopyr is great for clover. Drive also works well on clover. Then add crabrass control and seed in the fall--when temps come down to about 85. Use high quality seed--this is a tall fescue lawn, right? Add about 10 percent quality Kentucky bluegrass to improve the self-healing properties of the turf. And whatever caused the thinness (such as lack of water) fix that.

Do sprinklers hit the house? Could be iron stains from the water. Maybe an acid wash would fix that. But it does not look like it gets regular watering --so maybe not.
