Both clover and creeping charley can be controlled with a broadleaf herbicide containing 2,4-D and MCPP as its active ingredients. There is a potential for the herbicide to damage or even kill any woody or broad-leafed vegetation that it comes in contact with, so use it with caution. If you have areas with more creeping charlie and clover than lawn, you may wish to start over. Strip it off with a sod lifter (a hand tool), a sod cutter (a power tool) or apply glyphosate (a non-selective herbicide, sold as Roundup) to kill the entire area. Then you can reseed or sod.
