Answer: Without knowing what the weed is, I can't really suggest a control. Why not take a sample or two to your local cooperative extension office or garden center? They can probably identify the weed for you and recommend control strategies. The extension office can also recommend the best grass types to grow in your local area.

Good luck with your lawn!
