Default Strange Growth on Lawn

So I got a new customer, I start in an hour doing a cleanup/lawn maintenance..

His front lawn has a large Maple tree, not a lot of sun hits his grass.

From what I can see, he has grub problem & his grass isn't thick at all.

The main issue is, what the heck is growing from his lawn? There are a few weeds, and some other form of plant growing. Could it be a different form of weed?

I thought maybe when the maple tree leaves fell, they planted themselves in the ground, too bad they don't look like maple leaves.

They have roots too.

They are small & oval, reddish looking.

I never had a problem with this before, customers usually don't ask me so I never really cared. I told him it might be weeds, different things happen to lawns with a lot or a little bit of sun.

I will take a picture when I go.

I did a cleanup & maintenance job today for the customer. My trimmer is mad at me, it was on for quite awhile. Small lawn, but many obstacles... Boo!
