Old pasture = New yard?

We have 5 acres of spent farmland/pasture as our "yard". We live in a subdivision where the HOA expects acres of dandelion free/weed free bluegrass, as if we live in Kentucky. With only a few inches of not so great topsoil on top of feet of heavy clay, how do we get to some semblance of a green, weed free lawn, in an ecofriendly way? We are opposed to using chemicals if at all possible.The big pressure right now is to get rid of the dandelions to make the HOA happy. Sod was laid around the perimeter of the house 15 years ago and I am not sure with which type of grass the rest was seeded.- Sharon -
