This page from the National Pesticide Information Center should help to answer your question: http://npic.orst.edu/factsheets/24Dgen.html

What weeds are you trying to control? Best controls start with correctly identifying the weeds and then there are ways to prevent and/or manage the landscape or weeds without necessarily going the route of pesticides.
Here are our pages that can help: https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/topics/lawn-weed-id-and-management
If you can't find the weeds you have in our photo/info gallery, feel free to send us a photo. Up to 3 can be attached at a time by using the Choose File tabs below:
