Looking for a kill all solution for these weeds

Morning everyone. I just finished tackling a chinch bug problem. Now I'm moving on to the weed killing stage. I'm looking to see if they have a all-in-one solution for the weeds in my yard. Any help is appreciated ! Photos are attached in hopes that you can identify them for me

Do you want to kill the lawn too?

Hard to kill weed # 3 without killing the grass.

# 4 is Dollar weed. Caused by too much water. Very hard to kill by spraying and almost impossible to hand weed. It breaks off and regrows.

I can't even see any lawn...it's ALL weeds. Best thing to do is probably get rid of the whole lot and resod. For this, your options are to: use a herbicide, dig it up and sift out the roots, or cover with plastic and let the sun kill it.

Most all "weed" growth in lawns can be traced to poor soil conditions that do not allow good, healthy turf grass growth, so start with a good reliable soil test which the Louisiana State University Cooperative Extension Service does for a fairly nominal fee. Soil pH and major nutrients in balance can be a major help in growing a good healthy lawn that will aid in stopping unwanted plant growth. Other things that can help would be proper mowing and proper watering of the lawn.
