Identifying this lawn weed
The weed in your photo is a common chickweed. It is a winter annual. That means that it germinates in the fall, grows actively in late winter to early spring, and then dies out when the weather gets hot. The best defense is to keep a thick, healthy lawn. You can also dig it up and dispose of it before it flowers and goes to seed. More information is available on our website. Chemical control should be your last resort.
