Weed id?

Asked August 11, 2019, 5:41 PM EDT

Can you identify the weeds on the attached photos? Also, what is the best way to control these? There are three kinds of weeds that have taken over the lawn. I am sending two photos of each. I am sending a second message with additional photos. Thanks, Jim Koch

The first, lighter green taller weed is yellow nutsedge. It sometimes starts in the wetter areas of your lawn but can spread.
The third photo looks like Japanese stiltgrass. If you have never seen it flower, it is easy to pull up, and the roots are stringy it is stiltgrass.
