To scarify or not and what are these?...

I think the first is mostly daisy. Essential component of a lawn, along with the clover, selfheal and all the rest 

These are the ones, especially the clover, that keep my lawn green in summer, the grass is brown

They're both clarkia, but different species

I think the one in the pic may be Clarkia amoena, formerly Godetia amoena. The complete name, which always has 2 parts, is rarely used. There are many species of Clarkia.

Clarkia elegans is what we knew as clarkia

Looks like godetia to me.

But either godetia is now clarkia or it's the other way around

Sometimes they die right back in a cold winter. In milder ones the old stems re-shoot. I think some people cut them back to a stump in spring whatever they look like
