How can I get rid of stickers in my yard?

I have little stickers that grow in my yard that stops me from going barefoot. I have found they grow in a lot of places in Mobile, Alabama. My grandma took and pulled them up by the roots to get rid of them, there has to be a easier way.

    Grandma knows---best because you need to get all the flowers before they produce seeds

    We have them also and unfortunately we have to pull them out by the root. You could always hire a teenager from the neighborhood to spend a couple hours pulling weeds for you. $20 goes a long way with kids. Good luck!

    They hate "sweet" soil so my hubs fertilizes and limes the grass regularly and mows before they go to seed. We had them so bad we couldn't walk in the yard. We do this every year now to keep them away. We had too many to pull them up.

    I have them also here in SC . I weed & feed every year . I Have noticed that they eventually die off even if i don't weed and feed .
