Q.Need to Get Rid of a Fast Growing Ground Cover

Anonymous added on April 28, 2014 | Answered

Last year this green low covering plant showed up in my garden and took over fast. It is bright green, very healthy looking and does not have a deep root system. I can just scrape it up. Its not really a succulent but more of a broad-leaf type. It’s very low to the ground and multiplies like crazy. This year did not see signs of it, and then all of the sudden it’s here again; I’m afraid to spray it because I don’t want to kill the vegetables. My question is, how do I get rid of it?

Can you send us a picture? I suspect that it is creeping jenny or creeping charlie, but I would need a picture to confirm. Once we are sure what it is, we can better advise how to get rid of it.
