1. mow lawn at highest setting
2. done weed and feed from local garden supply, not big box, store. did nothing
3. done weed b gone, no effect
4. did ringers fertilizer and that seems to have doubled the weeds

Stop wasting the money. You can:

1. Reduce lawn area;
2. Reseed and/or overseed it with good grass seeds.

RE: post emergent treatment

Read through the lawn care forum. I haven't gone through it in a couple of years but last time I looked, they were recommending using round up and starting over. They were also into certain varieties of seed.
