We can't accept photo attachments through this forum but if you can post your pictures on a public website such as Flickr and send us a link, we can look at the photos and try to identify the problem weed. Or, you can dig a weed up and take it to a well staffed nursery or your local cooperative extension office for positive identification. I suspect that you are dealing with wild onions or wild garlic (are the leaves round and hollow? But it might be another type of weed altogether. Contact Iowa Cooperative Extension, 220 H Avenue, Nevada, IA 50201-2044 phone (515) 382-6551. Good luck with your lawn!
