Please help identify this weed and solution to get rid of them

Hi there,

My backyard has recently been covered with this type of weeds. After researching on the internet I think they are:

Black Medic (Medicago lupulina)

Could someone please confirm these? And what is the best solution to get rid of these? I live in Ontario, Canada.

Thanks very much!!

I agree that they are black medic, I wish I knew how to control it. I've been pulling it up by hand but slowly losing the battle.

Are they in the garden beds or in the lawn? You can use chemicals to kill undesirable plants or put newspaper over them and mulch on top around "good" plants. Tell us your situation.

Hi & welcome to Gardenweb.

I can't bare to sit and pull these out!
I usually do it with my clothes on!

Not sure what you want to hear? That there's a magic bottle of stuff you spray on everything but it only kills this plant? A curse you can put on them? The more you let them go, the more seeds you will have.
