I saw that you were in Texas...

My comment was to Ellwood (or anyone else) as I'm wary of suggestions if they aren't also in TX.
This is why I didn't suggest anything specific.

What do the LOCAL sources recommend to you?

If your lawn is really bad, the best thing to do is to apply round-up, wait a week or two, scrape up the dead weeds if possible, then lay sod. Otherwise you end up doing conflicting things or applying remedies at the wrong time of year. Once the sod is down, and kept well watered for several months, then you can hire a lawn service who will make sure all treatments and fertilizing are done at the perfect time in the perfect way.

If you cannot do this, then kill off the weeds and plant ground covers, but those too will take a couple of years to fill in, and you will need to weed frequently at first.
