comment What is a practical strategy for removing dandelions and bull-thistle from my lawn without them returning?
Other answers were about being grass only and about herbicides. I wanted to provide another viewpoint. Glad to hear you share it.

comment Which of these, if any, are poison ivy?
We have an acre an a half, so after the chemicals we just steer clear of the area for at least a few weeks. At no point does anyone touch the plants, alive or dead. The plants themselves sort of disappear after the treatment, presumably decomposing. The oils will disperse eventually.
