Have these all over my driveway and would like to get rid of them. I have a dog so I don’t want to use Kerosene. Can you please help?

It is Hairy Bittercress. Very annoying weed. I would recommend treating the area with Preen or corn gluten. This will stop the seeds that pop out from germinating. The mature plants typically die off after the seeds mature, so if you keep the new seeds from germinating, the old plants will die and the problem will be gone.
