Just get 2-4-d and mix with water.  Works great.  Want to kill everything, then Roundup and 2-4-d combined (mix roundup with water, then add 2-4-d).

When i had a lawn (one of the best in the neighborhood), I used Scott's Weed n Feed.  Broadcast when grass is wet.  Within days the non-grass starts yellowing and dies off.

Depends on the type of grass and the type of weed.

I have good results with Scott's Weed n Feed.  Grass turns green, weeds die and you can actually see the line o' death between my neighbor's dandelion crop and my weed-free lawn.

Ortho Weed-B-Gone for spot touchups.  They have a new applicator with a battery powered wand that extends so you don't need to mess with the hose, trying to get it to flow while crouched over.

Groundworks from TractorSupply is much better and cheaper.  It will kill everything for a decent amount of time.

Huge +1 there, most weed killer went touch nut grass or crab grass.  Image will, but it isn't great on broad leaf

Roundup is the least volatile,  I have some stuff in the barn though that is used on crops, that will most assuredly guarantee that if used on weeds in a lawn, you will not need to mow any time soon.

If you can get the license for it, Trimec 992, aka the brown death. You only need a little bit. Like, a a gallon and a half for 500 gallons. It'll make your dandelions sizzle

Is Weed-B-Gon Max the same stuff?  It's what I used on my bermuda lawn and it did a great job of killing the broadleaf weeds that popped up this spring.

Not sure if OP has those, but the Bonus S is a no go anyway due to the bermuda grass.

Ortho Problem Solver

It has pictures of the weeds.
Select the type of weed you have and it will tell you what chemical to use.

This is one of the most effective and is safer than a product that carries a danger label. I used speedzone commercially for a while and it works well, add a water soluble fertilizer to the tank mix and it speeds up the herbicide.

Try manage or monument as they are effective on sedges. Add fertilizer to the tank mix with ALL herbicides as it speeds uptake and accelerates the death of the weed.

The hotter it gets the more likely you will damage trees and shrubs with 2,4-d or Dicamba. Anything over 90 degrees you can watch the vapor rise off the ground and move around, remember you are also breathing this vapor as well so use this stuff in the early morning hours.

If you have a large tank sprayer and a lot of ground to spray this product works well too but pay attention to any danger labels and wear what they tell you to wear.
