    I CURRENTLY HAVE A CLOVERLEAF LIKE WEED WITH VERY SMALL YELLOW BLOOMS THAT ARE TAKING OVER MY YARD.

    THIS WEED IS VERY DENSE AND GROWS REALLY FAST. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME WHAT IT IS AND HOW CAN I GET
    RID OF IT?

    RICK THE CAPS ARE ANNOYING. On this site, typing in caps in considered that you are yelling, type in lowercase for future reference.

    Try a scotts program on your lawn. I use it on all of my lawns and it works. It is a 4 step program..give it a shot

    Good Luck :)

    it sounds like oxalis (there is another name but cant think of it) I do not think a scotts product will work but check the label to see if it is listed. It usually takes a professional strenght liquid product to get good results.

    I have had good results with Orthos weed b gone. For spot control

    Just like anything else be sure to read the label.
    So you know if it stays active once on the soil.
    For home use I like using the ready mixed. That way I dont wind up with all kinds of extra chemicals hanging around.

    Good Luck with whatever you choose.

    Possible Medicago lupulina....aka black medic.

    Momentum.

    Every thought about hiring an insured and licensed lawn care company with certified and licensed applicators?

    you really should consider having a profesional come out, maybe someone from here is close to you and could spray it for you,youll get better results

    Sounds like Oxalis, wood sorrel, treat with 2,4-D products, but will take 2 or 3 apps.
