That is what we do...doesn't get rid of all the weeds, but it does help from them choking out all the grass.

I use a broad leaf spray called Tordon Pasture Boss which is great for killing off buttercup. Unfortunately it also kills the kikuyu grass which isnt the best grass but great for summer because its so hardy and keeps growing in drought situations.
If I cant be bothered spraying then I just take the tops off with a weed eater to slow it down and let the other grass grow through.
I have never tried using vinegar though, will definitely have a go!
