lawn weed

Ronan Scroope asked 6 years ago

I have discovered a clover like weed that has spread throughout my lawns. It has a very small yellow bulb like head on it that tangles itself throught out the grass ,not sure what it is or the best way to get rid of it. I put down a weed and feed about 3 weeks ago which to be honest didnt do much. Just wondering how long do i wait before i spray with a weed killer and then fertilise it.

This sounds like shamrock, which is also known as yellow suckling clover. Lots of people like it!

It is a sign of low soil fertility. Feeding will help.
