Default Name this weed

I have this weed that's taking over my lawn and I'd like to treat it with something this spring. Can anyone suggest a fertilizer or tell me what type of weed this is?

If I'm not mistaken, I believe that stuff is Dollar Weed.

Kind of looks like Creeping Charlie. You'll need to use 2-4d to kill it.

Most fertilizer companies will have some fertilizer with 2-4d added. Just look for it.

On the other hand, I've had far more success with a sprayer.

Looks like Creeping Charlie to me too. Last house had tons of it and never quite could get rid of it but I wasn't as aggressive as I should have been.

Best time to spray is in October but second best time is Spring when it's flowering. Get good spray (it's resistant to many).

Yup....Creeping Charlie for sure. Grows where I don't want it to. Tried pulling some of it up by the roots to re-plant on slight hills to prevent or deter erosion....didn't take.

Same here lol. I never really would have classified it as a weed either, but I guess thats what it is.
