A proliferation of weeds of any kind usually means your lawn grass is in some kind of trouble and unable to outcompete the weeds. Although weeds can sometimes be a rough indicator of relative alkalinity or acidity, the best way to tell is with a soil test. The test will tell you about the pH as well as the fertility of the soil. Your county extension should be able to help you with the tests and interpreting the results so you will know more exactly what is needed and in what quantity.
