Sorry, no help here. I don't have a lawn, I have a yard which is trying to revert to meadow and woods. Mowing it once a week helps to keep more trees from sprouting. The good news? I can dig organic dandelion greens!

Gardens Alive makes a corn gluten weed and feed (WOW Supreme) that kills weeds then breaks down into fertilizer.
Here is the link to the product: http://www.gardensalive.com/product.asp?pn=2836
Used the company for years-great people!
The stuff that I use is Cockadoodle Doo Organic Corn Gluten Meal and Chicken Fertilizer. I'm sure it is quite similar to the product Reesacat recommends.

We used the corn gluten for a couple of years, on the recommendation from P. Allen Smith (the garden guy) but it stinks when it gets wet. Blech. It did the job, but has to be used early early early in the spring in order to work. In fact, the last year we used it we put it on top of the thin layer of snow we had in April. We had a few dandelions, but nothing to write home about. It can be purchased from a local feed store if you have one in your area.
Started using Eco Lawn seed about four years ago, and our lawn is lush and full and green, whenever we HAVE a lawn! We had hail today - first thunderstorm of the year so far, and now the weather man is predicting snow by mid-week next week. Holy cow.

About three years ago I also purchased some vining black-eyes Susans from this company. I'd never heard of vining ones before, and now that they are fairly well established, they are devine (no pun intended). Very soft colors, peach, cream, light yellow, baby pink. Just lovely.

Thunbergia alata. I used to grow them in baskets; always considered them an annual. I'm amazed that they are perennial in your climate. What USDA zone are you?
