So I've been trying to renovate the lawn and it's a damn struggle. Can anyone help identify these? Specifically the tiny ones, not the larger. But both would help me so much. The little tiny ones are coming up in every nook and cranny, almost everyday it seems like. The bigger ones are out back, and I'm currently working out front. The tiny ones, though they're everywhere this is the clearest photo I can get. I'm finding ones with 2 leafs, 1 leaf straight from ground, and 2 leafs with a little thing in the middle of the leafs OR they have 3 leafs. I'm sorry these aren't very helpful. We have an array of weeds but I'm reseeding half the lawn from dirt (clay sandy) but they're finding their way back. They're growing in between the side wall cracks.

*** First photos are the ones that I'm getting sick of coming up all over out front. There's circular leaf ones who are tiny & then I found these bigger ones and I'm assuming they're the same thing? and more grassy ones with the 1,2or3leafs.
The rest of the photos are the more "grown" weeds out back. They're all almost oddly heart shaped?***

6, Prunella
7,8 Violets , common native , but I get way too many as well and don't preserve them

The rest are so tiny, it is hard to be sure. Two leafs straight from the ground is the way seedlings of any broadleaf weed look. 3 leafs, is the initial 2 plus the first true leaf. The true leaves have shape more like mature plant.

Everything I see is broadleaf, not grass.
Plant it and they will come.

Sallyg, thank you! I've had it with this lawn honestly I'm ready to set it all on fire. Those little tiiiny sprouts are everywhere. Even up at my parents house in my dads veggie gardens. I'm not surprised the one is wild violet, we have a lot of that. But I hadn't seen any bunched up like this so it was weird. I've seen some kinds of thistle out front, definitely dandelions, some other broad leafs with only 4 roundish leafs-no flowering. Lots of woodsorrel, lots of everything tbh. I saw a photo of knotweed sprouts/seedlings and these tiny ones looked like it and I got scared. Because we DO have knotweed out back, and it's dying thankfully and haven't seen anymore come up but good lord if it was out front I'd lose my mind. Thank You!

It looks like you are trying to grow turf in the shade.... grass doesn't grow there.

Rather than starting a fire, suggest a nice shade perennial garden.

I thought I saw an impatiens...

And maybe a prunella.
