How to Identify and Kill Weed in My yard

Asked November 19, 2016, 2:37 PM EST

Hello. I live in a townhouse. I recently raked and chopped most of the weeds in my yard. I put down topsoil turf builder, composte and manure, and grass seed. Grass has grown in beautifully, but here and there are patches of green weeds, I assume. They are in my front yard and only one of my next door neighbor's yard and also growing in the topsoil I put under a tree. How do I identify and get rid of. The leaves are a beautiful green and round like clover, but I don't think it's clover. Secondly, how do I kill? I was so looking forward to a beautiful yard in the spring. I think I see this same "weed" all over the neighbor's back yard. But it appears to be our yards mostly and migrating to the other neighbors yard. I have to stop this!

Photo on left - Looks like clover. See our website for photos and control information. Follow all label directions if you use an herbicide. Herbicides are not effective in cold temperatures.
