What is the best way to kill sand spurs? Is it the same as crabgrass?

I think you are referring to Sand Burrs, which have to be dealt with before the "burrs or seeds" appear. I live in an area that has a lot of sand burrs. I try to find the plant and kill it early in the spring before it goes to seed in the fall. If you use a lawn sweeper every time you mow you will pick up all of the burrs that are lying on the ground waiting to germinate. Use the lawn sweeper for a whole season and you will definitely know the difference next year. You can dig the plant up with a dandelion fork or just spray each plant with Round-Up. Eventually your grass will cover the bare spots.
