    At my house i have a lot of dandys, and clover, but other that that the yard looks great. Thick grass and not patching or anything. What can i do to get rid of all the dandys....i hate the color yellow in my lawn and at one point during the summer almost my whole lawn in parts is yellow....

    2-4d will kill the dandelions and burn clover, available at most any farm store. The clover is more difficult to eradicate. Clover does not like nitrogen, you should fertilize heavily in the fall and spray a couple times then(early and later october on the clover patches). You might have to use a 3 way herbicide or amine(LV) based 2-4d.

    What kind of fertilizer should i put down. Something with a weed preventer or killer in it? Also should i over seed this fall also or in early spring?? Or not at all.

    Just use a good fertilizer like a 30-2-10 or something close for the fall around labor day and again in mid october, if you do an additional winterizer in late November use Urea. If you need to overseed do it around labor day-end of september depending on heat and soil moisture. I advise against spring seeding unless the area has no grass.
