Thanks for the picture. While I favored ground ivy in my previous answer, this picture sure looks like creeping buttercup, Ranunculus repens. It is an invasive plant in my locale but easier to treat than Glechoma. Any broadleaf herbicide meant for grass should work. I've also hand removed small infestations. Quite a bit of foliage comes with each rooted section. The roots are tenacious but short so a trowel or hori-hori knife will pop the plants out. You are likely to have some seed left behind so keep an eye on the area and remove these when they germinate.
