I apologize for the delayed reply. Spring has brought on a lot of questions and we're working fast to catch up!
Your description of the weed seems to describe a type of medic somewhat but not entirely. In order to prescribe the most effective control option and timing which is important, we need to have an accurate identification. I suggest you contact your County Extension Office there in Autauga County and see about bringing in a sample for identification. Once the weed is identified either they or we can provide some control recommendations. The Extension Office's contact info is:
2226 Hwy 14 W, Suite E
Phone: (334) 361-7273
Thanks and please stop in with you gardening question any time we can help.
