Weed Identification

Asked March 1, 2018, 2:44 PM EST

Could you please tell me what kind of weed this is growing in my lawn. I just can`t seem to get Reid of it for very long. It is hard to kill and still comes back every year about this time of year.

This is chickweed. There are several types, some that are annual that grow, starting in the fall each year, and others that are perennial, coming back year after year.
Here is the page from our weed gallery that will help you know what you have and the best means of control:
