just moved into this property (rental) and the lawn is all weed. I’m wondering what I could do to possibly fix this? Would weed and feed work? Should I aerate it also? Or is this a case of starting fresh? It just recently rained that’s why it’s muddy.
This is in sort of a new development area and most of the houses around here have lawns like this.

Personally, I would start with a clean slate and apply a weed killer to the area removing all the weeds present. I would follow that up by aerating the lawn and filling those holes with Bastion 20kg River Sand. This will allow a route for water to drain through as the ground appears rather compacted which is possible due to standing water in the area. Once you have completed the aeration I would apply Hortico 25 Lawn Top-dress Mix and then re-seed or lay turf.
