This weed completely took over our backyard last year. Very tough and woody, with deep roots, and almost impossible to pull up. I tried several weed control sprays, to no avail. By the end of the summer last year, there was nothing but these little buggers. No grass.

What are these things? ... and what do I need to kill them, preferably without killing my grass?

Side note: My grass has come back this year and looks great (at the moment). There's still the dead husks of these weeds all about and they're still hard to pull by hand, but I'm going to try wetting the ground a bit before trying to uproot them again.

These pictures were taken on September 19th, 2019 in Loveland, Colorado.

If you don't mind using chemicals, find an herbicide with the ingredient 2,4-D. It should be labeled as a broadleaf weed killer. Follow the directions carefully; it will not kill the grass. I have no idea what that weed is, but it is a broadleaf plant. Welcome to the forum and good luck.
