Fast Spreading Lawn Weed

Anonymous added on June 25, 2012 | Answered

There is a fast spreading yellow weed that has infested neighboring lawns and I need to identify it and take the necessary precautions to stop the spreading to my lawn. The weed is close to the ground, has a succulent appearing at the base, no leaves, and a five pointed, tiny yellow flower. It has five tiny tips near the hair-like stamen with a very tiny yellow ball at the tip. In a nearby yard, the flowering weed has taken over about 80 percent of the lawn. Can you help me?
