Asked July 9, 2019, 3:14 PM EDT

I have this taking over my lawn. I tried reseeding lawn after dogs dug up all my grass. This year all I got was this spreading weed.

It is Prostrate Knotweed. It can be pretty aggressive. It sounds like you may need to start over if you don't have any grass growing. Now is not a good time but once it cools down in late Aug. would be better. Here are a couple of links to info about it as well as how to renovate your lawn. https://apps.extension.umn.edu/garden/diagnose/weed/idlist.html#PKnotweed . https://extension.umn.edu/lawns-and-landscapes/lawn-care
