Maybe we're talking about two different types of clover. The kind I'm trying to get rid of is a very unattractive, rapidly spreading weed with tiny yellow flowers. It seems to be rather common here in the Southwest ... and it looks like this:

There's another type of clover that does fairly well here in shady spots during the summer, but only if it's kept moist. That's called Dychondra, and it actually adds some beauty to a Bermuda grass lawn.

Default Yellow Sweet clover

The best way to kill that clover is Roundup. However that will not always be effective when the plant is mature and woody. You also need to get your soil checked. Clover is usually a sign of very low nitrogen levels in your soil. You need to attack the clover when the plants are young. Again the products I recommend before work well in lawn areas during the dormant season. Especially if you have burmuda as your summer lawn. You can also use Round up effectively if your burmuda grass is still dormant.
