The top one is clover and the bottom one is spotted spurge.
Get some Ortho weed-b-gone CCO. That will handle the clover for sure, and probably also the spurge. I say "probably" because there are a couple of products marketed to control spurge that are basically 3-ways with triclopyr, and the Ortho CCO is triclopyr. Also FWIW I get some spurge every year and it pulls out easily enough if you grab it by the taproot, so that's another route you could go if you don't have an insane amount of it.

Top looks like yellow woodsorrel to me. Spurge is the bottom
Check out my YouTube channel for reel mowing vids: the southern reel mower.
