Weed identification needed in NC ...please

gary1-2007August 26, 2010

I live SE of Charlotte and my lawn has been taken over by this weed. It grows over the grass and if you push it over you can see that there is no grass under it. If I cut the weed to the ground I will have virtually no lawn. what it is ? I have searched the internet but cannot find it. It looks similar to pigweed but not as big. Please help.. Thanks !

The picture is too small to be able to identify what you have. Have you asked the people at your local office of the North Carolina State University Cooperative Extension Service for help in identifying this?

Here is a link that might be useful: NCSU CES
