Post subject:  Weed in north Texas lawn - tiny, leafy with purple blossoms

My neighbor and I have a pair of adjacent houses with about 10,000 square feet of Bermuda grass lawn and landscape including front and back. This spring, so far we have applied a gallon of Garrett juice, 40 lbs/1000 sqft lava sand and a 40 lbs bag of corn gluten meal around March 15, then 2 bags of Texas green sand and another 40 lbs bag of corn gluten meal around April 21.

This weekend, I noticed a LOT of small, leafy, almost grass-like weeds (with tiny purple blossoms at the tops) have started to grow, very intermingled with the grass. They are quite green and not too bad looking yet. I harvested about a bucketful within a small area and realized they would be too much to pull off the entire lawn.

Attaching some pictures. I would like to identify them and do whatever is appropriate to take care of them.

Howard probably knows this one off the top of his head but I'm working on it.

It looks like this has a square stem (four distinct edges when you feel it, it isn't round like a straw). Is that correct?

I haven't had any luck identifying the weed, but you could call the station on Sunday and tell the call assistant where to find the photo and perhaps Howard can tell you what it is and how to treat it.

Good luck!
