    What effectively rids a yard of sandspurs without harming the grass?

    For some reason, sand spurs are appearing in our yard.  We hadn't had them prior to this spring... nasty little boogers.  What safely kills sandspurs without harming the grass?

    Unfortunately no easy way. I generally dig them out. Rake up any of the spurs that fell off when you dug them out. Were real bad at first, but keeping my lawn looking great smothered most of them. Mow often, water, and fertilize to keep your yard looking great. Eliminate the bare spots and the weeds. This should eventually make your yard free of this painful spurs!

      Your comment is in line with what I have pretty much resolved that I will be digging up the spurs - roots and all - and putting them in a bag, then throwing in garbage.  Thank you.
