I used spectracide weed stop on my front lawn to kill clover. It worked but left a mat of dead clover. I want to do the same in my back yard, but instead of raking it up (pain in my rear), can I till it in when I till my yard to prep for seeding. what are draw backs if any

Once the clover is dead, it won't resprout but there may be seeds in the ground that might pop up in your new lawn. As long as you're prepared for that, tilling under the dead clover shouldn't pose any other problems. Good luck with your lawn!
