Hi, folks. I'm a new homeowner here in Round Rock, TX facing my first year of lawn management. I've done lots of reading recently that says it's important to identify weeds before treating the problem, which makes complete sense, of course. However, identifying the weeds growing on my lawn has proven almost impossible. I'm hoping you experienced folks will be able to assist me!
Here's a link to a Photobucket album containing high-resolution images of each weed. There are more weeds than these but these are the most common.
A few notes:
- Sod was installed last year near the end of the year
- Weeds seem to like growing near my fenceline and in between strips of sod
- Grass is bermudagrass
- Soil is a very heavy clay that is currently damp or soggy; unfortunately, I don't have any soil specifics because I don't yet have results for a soil test I took recently
I've tried a bunch of weed ID Web sites but have so far been unsuccessful. This includes searching for information based on specific parts of the plant.
