That's "green kyllinga", a type of sedge.

It spreads fast and is hard to kill. The best way to handle it is to yank out as much as you can by hand; get the roots out if possible. Then, apply a herbicide containing halosulfuron (a popular one is SedgeHammer) with a garden sprayer to all areas containing the weed.

Once the weed is gone, the easiest (and cheapest) way to keep it from coming back is to grow a healthy, well-drained lawn. Drainage is important because green kyllinga likes waterlogged soil.

You could also use a pre-emergent herbicide containing prodiamine and sulfentrazone (such as Echelon) to keep it from coming back. However, it's best to avoid that if you can because that particular herbicide is a hazard to both the environment and your health.
