Weeds in Lawn

Somerset, United Kingdom Gb

We have inherited a front lawn that turns out to be mostly weeds - dandelions, dock and clover mainly. It's getting worse. I sprayed some individually and very carefully (so I thought) with a systemic weedkiller, but it must have travelled on the breeze because it has left me with large patches of bare soil. Is there an alternative to razing it all to the ground and starting again? I did think about digging out the dandelions and docks, but there are so many it would take forever. Please help!



There is a lawn weedkiller that leaves only the grass undamaged, it used to be called Verdone, but I trhink the name has been changed. Askat your Garden Centre.
