Question Help ridding lawn of a couple different weeds

First post, bear with me..... This is my first year living in my home (southern NE), still getting used to all the ins and outs. I've got a couple of weeds that I'm looking to get rid of, any tips? The first one is a clover-like weed. I've found that if I grab it just right, it comes up in strands. I got rid of most of it in my back yard this way, but I'm afraid my front lawn just has too much. Advice? I've been using Scott's four step plan when it comes to fertilizer. Nothing fancy.

The second weed isn't as prevalent, but when it shows up it completely takes over.

It's getting late in the season, but I would hit them with some Weed B Gone or similar. That will kill it down to the roots. You will probably have to re treat next spring when their seeds start sprouting fresh growth.

Do you have a dog? If no then those dead brown areas may be brown patch, a fungus that often afflicts fescue turf grass.

I do have a dog, but the dog stays in the back yard (this is the front). The brown patches have actually come back to life recently. That pic is about a month or two old. But the clovers are definitely still present. I should take a better picture.

What I recommended in post # 2 should take care of the clover. Read the list of weeds etc. it attacks, on the container.
