The pictures of Goat Head Sticker Vine that I Google don't look like that. And I'm a northerner, so I really don't know what y'all have for weeds down there. However, I'd suggest spraying it with a 2,4-D product or it'll probably take over your lawn.

Well yeah, but I was saying "y'all" to Y'alls Alabamans. I guess I've been watching too much "Swamp People" and getting confused...

We have (and I think most places do) a country agricultural extension agency. Call city hall and ask. They could advise you.
