What do you carry or know of that will kill most of the weeds but not clover. I live in the Colorado Plains if that helps.

I'm afraid that any herbicide you use to kill weeds will also kill clover. Hand pulling the weeds is best and overseeding with help the clover thicken up and crowd out any weed seeds that try to sprout. It can take about 3 years for a clover lawn to establish itself and grow thick enough to crowd out weeds. Just keep encouraging it and pulling out those weeds before they flower and go to seed.
