Lawn care

Hi my lawn is looking a bit rough and could do with a bit of TLC. I worked hard on it last year and it was looking good after years of neglect but the winter and children have take their toll on it. I was planning on using weed and feed, scarifying it and aerating it with a garden fork. The problem is I've just set up three 3ft x 6ft  x 6" high veg beds along one side of my garden and wasn't sure if weed and feed would be a good idea since the grass growns right up to the veg beds. Would I be best feeding the lawn and treating the weeds individually?

    I've always used a weed and feed treatment on my front lawn and it never affects the flower beds around it.  I think it'll be fine.  

    For the first few mowings after the treatment put the grass in the waste bin rather than on the compost heap - that way the weed treatment won't contaminate the compost.
