If having a lawn brings pleasure and it is what you want, try all the above and get your lawn started, don't be put off with a few dandelions, if the methods above kill them you are onto a winner.
I had and still have the same problem with dandelions in the lawn, dandelion roots must grow down to Australia in my garden either that or they have built up a resistance to every weed killer known to man. The lawn however if kept short and regularly mowed doesn't show them. It's fed and weeded each spring and I live in hope one day there will be no dandelions.
Good luck and happy gardening
