Backyard weed

Asked July 5, 2017, 12:47 PM EDT

I live on 2 acres in Myersville with farmland surrounding most of the area. I have this new weed growing in my backyard that is spreading at a fast rate. I've tried to kill it using Weed-B-Gone with no results. Can you suggest what to use?

It looks like you are dealing with ground ivy (Glechoma hederacea). This is a difficult weed to control. Take a look at the following page for mechanical and chemical control recommendations: https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/ground-ivy
