Lawn weed identification

Asked January 24, 2019, 10:51 AM EST

Hi.. I need help identifying these weeds and recommendations on products to eradicate them from my lawn please!! I have a blend of tall fescue. I established my lawn early fall and grass looks great! These weeds are taking over and want to get rid of them before spring.

I can send more pictures if that would help??

Your first photo shows Ground Ivy, sometimes called Creeping Charlie, and a small amount of Common Chickweed.

Your second photo looks like Henbit.

Your third photo is Hairy Bittercress.
Here is our page that shows these plants:

If there are not many you can just hand pull. Other control options are listed, like spot treatment with a broad-leaf weed killer during the spring/summer. Always read and follow labels carefully.
