HELP!! My yard is being taken over by a clover/groundcover-type weed that is harmless at first but when about to seed, it becomes this crazy sticky (like glue - not like spurs) that sticks all over my dogs' paws (& my shoes). Does anyone know what this type of weed is called so I can research how to get rid of it - or can anyone recommend a solution?
I could also use a lawn service / cutting recommendation (not a landscaper), please!!

It is called Desmodium. If you keep your lawn mowed....and beds free of weeds, you should not have a problem. I never recommend using sprays in a yard where dogs may be. Sometimes, when hiking, I've gotten into lots of them....on my slacks. I find that using a butter knife to 'comb' them off works best. Do not put clothing with these seeds in the washer!! They will end up everywhere, including your undies!!
