Need help in identifying this lawn weed in Olney, Md.

Asked June 19, 2017, 10:05 AM EDT

What kind of weed is this this? Live in Olney, Md. and this lawn weed crops up every year. I grows low to the ground in in large clusters. Just below grass, so the mower won't touch it. Thank you for any help!

Does it smell like anything when you crush the leaf?
It resembles a mint, but the stems growing off the running root would be square. We can't tell if that is the case here.


Sorry, did not conduct a "smell" test, but I can. What should I be looking for and what "particular smell" will identify the plant (weed)? Thank you for your effort. -John Ames

Mint, spearmint, lemon, something like that.
