whats in my lawn

hi all, I was hoping a gardening expert could identify the clover (?) that has taken over huge parts of my lawn - please see the attachments. Should I get this treated? Cheers for any advice, Al

I don't know what the weed is but a broad-leaf weed killer will get rid of it. To test buy a spray bottle of it and try a small area. I like the Bayer product.

You have a mix in the pictures of Birds foot Trefoil and Black medick.
You need a selective weed killer to kill

birdsfoot trefoil is a nice plant that provides free nitrogen fertilizer. why get rid of it? i'd rather get rid of the grass...
trim it once in a while and let it go and you should see some nice yellow flowers while still keeping a neat appearance.
if you are using a mulching mower that is good as it will build the soil up instead of removing all those nutrients.

complete". Dont worry when you use it as the weeds will grow rigorously this all part of the process. Warning - DO NOT over dose the lawn as the grass will be killed off, read the instructions.
