I'm surprised no one has responded as yet.

The first one is a narrow leaf plantain. You can dig out the plants, but be certain to get all the roots.

I'm not familiar with number two. But I suspect you can treat it the same way as #1.

As for the 3rd weed -- when you crush the leaves, does it smell like either garlic or onion? If either of those, they will b more challenging to get rid of. I suggest you contact you county's Extension Service office to learn what works in your region.

I took another look at #3- If not smelling like either garlic or onion, it's likely nutgrass. (Let's hope it's not because that's a really tough one to eradicate.)

And to locate your county's Extension Service office, use this interactive map -

I disagree with the id of no.1 as Plantago lanceolata, which has parallel leaf veins and looks quite different IMO, but the method of dealing with it will be the same whatever it is.

#3 - Maybe bahiagrass if you have that where you are. It also has a strong resemblance to Tradescantia, one of the spiderworts like T. virginiana or T. ohiensis.

I see two weeds in #3. One is grassy and the other has very finely divided leaves.

The latter could be dog fennel (Eupatorium capillifolium). Try crushing the leaves and see if there is an odor.
