Dollarweed, also called Pennywort, is a small broadleaf plant. The best way to get rid of it is to hand pull it from the root.The problem is that it grows in large patches and it replaces itself quickly so that few find pulling it up a reasonable solution. There are, however, chemicals available including WipeOut by GreenLight which will kill the weeds but not their seeds so multiple applications will be needed. Be sure to follow label directions. Best wishes with your lawn!
