what weed is this and how to eradicate it

8 years ago

The area in front of my deck was filled with overgrown shrubs and mulch until I removed them last July. After leveling the ground and adding a good growing soil I planted Pennington Smart Seed Northeast mix. It grew in nicely before the winter so most of the bare ground was covered with new grass before it went dormant.

This spring I am seeing an explosion of light-colored weeds in that area. I don't even know what kind of weed it is but my backpack spray mixture of clover killer and selective weed killer did nothing to it in the first application two weeks ago. The other typical weeds and clover (those areas that I managed to treat) are gone already.

I would appreciate any advice in identifying and eradicating it from my lawn because it appears to be spreading.
