We have a patch of lawn that has suddenly become covered in wild mint. We've returned after two months and it has almost completely taken over the lawn. It has happened very quickly. I don't recall even seeing it there before we left. The lawn was quite mossy prior to the arrival of the mint.
Can anyone recommend an effective eradication method?

|If you don't mind using a herbicide, one containing 2-4-D will kill the broad leaf mint without killing the grass. Follow the label carefully.

|How long have you lived there?
Looks like apple mint... and... as the grass was thin, it looks like some help.
I always did want a mint lawn... allowed to grow enough to flower and attract pollinators, you have the start of a wildlife garden.
I think you should try making tea.
