Lawn Full Of Weeds

Hi All, new to the forum. I’ve attached a photo of a weed that has taken over my lawn. They’re everywhere. Is a weed and feed the best way to go about eliminating these? Or should I look to dig each 1 up and put grass seed down? There’s literally 100’s of them. Many thanks in advance for any help. Cheers
It's a broad leaf weedkiller, so it kills pretty much everything that isn't grass. The idea is that you apply it to your entire lawn, so it also kills the smaller weeds that you can't really see. One application a year should be all you need.
It takes a few weeks to work so give it time, but I'm sure it will sort out your problem. Once the weeds have died, you might want to consider reseeding any larger patches, although healthy lawns will naturally close small gaps. Reseeding is best done in September when it's a little cooler.
NB: Weedol is most effective when the weeds are growing well (not at the height of summer) so try to apply it ASAP.
A shame really, have you thought about introducing more wild-flowers to your lawns ?
Certainly makes for a more interesting feature in any garden .
Leave it and concentrate on the fun stuff like planting up borders.
Ps going round the edges with a half moon makes it look neat and kempt -if that's a word.
