Where are you? Is it possible to post larger versions of those photos or take closer shots?

Yes, those pix are like postage stamps. Size them to be 800x600. Then upload at full size. And when you retake the pictures, take them when the sun is low or when there are clouds. There's too much contrast in the full sun to see what we're looking at. If you can find a flower on the weeds, that really helps to ID them.

The second one looks like crabgrass in bermuda. When you don't feed bermuda heavily every month, it can thin out and allow weeds in. Also it needs an inch of water, all at one time, every week in the summer heat. It should be mulch mowed twice a week at 1 inch most of the year and 1.5 inches when the heat gets really serious.

The 3rd one: Prostrate Spurge Euphorbia supina Raf. is a low growing summer annual. The leaves have a red blotch in the center and stems ooze a milky sap when broken.
