What is this weed in my lawn

Is the weed "creeping buttercup" and is there a selective herbicide that will kill it?

Hi Gordon,

If the weed leaves are very small it may be creeping oxalis. This can be controlled using Buffalo Pro which is safe to use on buffalo as well as other grasses. Creeping buttercup has a slightly bigger leaf, slightly feathery on the edges. Both these weeds are difficult to control and generally need more than one application. It may take a few years to completely eradicate the weed.
