Weeds in Lawn

There are weeds sprouting in my lawn, and I’d like to identify them so I can use the right control methods to get rid of them. Can you help?

Master Gardener Answer:
There are three general categories of weeds that can invade your lawn – broadleaf weeds, grass weeds, and sedges.

To help you identify what kind of weeds you might have, view a Weed Photo Gallery http://www.ipm.ucdavis.edu/PMG/weeds_intro.html
and also use the Identification key to weeds
http://www.ipm.ucdavis.edu/TOOLS/TURF/PESTS/weedkey.html

Once you have identified the weed, read Weed Management in Lawns to find out the best control methods
