I just had a new concrete patio poured. Afterwards I had topsoil delivered to fill in around the new patio. After planting new grass and it starting to fill in nicely, I am seeing all sorts of strange weeds popping up all around in the newly planted area. It sort of looks like poison ivy but most of the leaves seem to be growing in pairs not in 3's. I have been trying to identify what it is so I can carefully target the appropriate herbicide to address it without killing all my new grass. I really don't want to burn it all down with glyphosate and start all over again. Can someone please help identify this for me? Thanks in advance.

I think you have tree seeds sprouting in your new lawn.

No need to worry. Just mow the lawn and the tree seedlings will disappear.
