|I am completely new to gardening and need advice on how to handle large patches of weed in my lawn. I have noticed there are a couple of different kind of weed that is growing and slowly taking over the rest of the grass as well.
Attaching images of the closeup and the lawn:
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

|Cannot see just what weeds you have but a general weed and feed often works to a degree.|

|I would use professional help for one year.
After that you will be able to maintain your lawn (I do!).

|Sometimes it is best to start over from scratch. If you think you are at that point, you can do the following:
1. Kill everything with an all-vegetation herbicide
2. Wait a couple of weeks–read the label of the herbicide you used in step 1 to be sure of the time you need to wait–and then till the soil
3. Either lay sod or establish seed in the area you wish to repair
It's more of a nuclear option but it works.
