“Picker” grass weed…

Sorry that I don’t know the correct term, but people here just refer to it as picker grass. It’s green, grows in patches, and in the spring time produces lil’ brown pickers or stickers that’ll stick in your barefeet like a tiny thorn.

Can anyone help me with a name for this weed and how can I get rid of it? It grows in late winter, early spring and dies when the late summer heat gets to it.

Thanks

What kind of turf are you trying to grow?

How do you water it?

How do you mow it?

How do you fertilize it?

What I usually suggest is to focus on growing the grass you want and the weeds will take care of themselves. Of course there are exceptional weeds that will grow like, well, weeds, when you take care of the grass, but once everything is healthy, you can deal with the weeds.
