    I agree with @Chris-P-Bacon … I’ve scattered white clover seed into my lawn … it stays green during dry spells and we have happy bees. Just don’t cut too short.

    From a wildlife perspective I agree with the above comments.
    However if you really want to rid your lawn of clover and other weeds then use one of the many Weed and Feed lawn care treatments available as both a liquid and granules.
    My lawn is full of weeds too, but I have dog so the lawn was sacrificed years ago anyway and I don't bother and it looks fine - from a distance :)
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    clover also " fixes " nitrogen in the soil. 
    I'd leave it too.
    Unlike  " weed 'n' feed " it won't do your dog any harm either
