    Very pretty, and high maintenance I gather. I'm now wondering how you edge your lawn. Your grass is fine. The weed looks like speedwell. I believe it will slowly go if you continue to feed, rake and collect all your lawn clippings. Don't let lawn clippings lie on the lawn after mowing. In autumn time, spike the whole lawn and using a stiff broom, work in lawn sand and then top dress again to level out any hollows and hopefully, this will help build a more denser lawn. The denser the grass, the least likely you will have these types of weeds thriving.
