We only see hairy bittercress in both photos. For photos of both of these weeds, click on Weeds on our homepage in the Problems section:http://extension.umd.edu/hgic/problems/problem-weeds

These weeds pop up in thin turf or bare spots. Easiest solution is to thicken turf, which will shade them out. If the area is not good for turf (less than 3-4 hours of good sunlight a day) think about groundcovers, shrub beds or mulch. (Never plant English ivy--it is a notorious non-native invasive plant.)
