It is a weed that has a low profile and is growing in a delicate vine format.

I am going to guess it is bindweed. Does it have a flower that looks a little like a white or pink morning glory? This article should help:

Destroying Bindweed

I have an area about 200 sq feet that has been invaded by bindweed. If I put down a black plastic mulch, will that kill it? I normally don’t like to use plastic mulch, but if it gets rid of the bindweed, I will use it for a few seasons.

Yes, black plastic mulch can be used to eradicate bindweed. However, you have other options if you are not totally comfortable with that, which are discussed in the following article:

How Do I Kill Bindweed?

I have dug it out year after year and it still comes back. It has killed out my grass in the back by my porch.

Killing Bindweed

How? I have identified the roots and pull them out as much as I can, but I’m afraid when I pull them, I just break them into small pieces when make them spread more. I’m also adding a lot of topsoil to my garden with hopes of burying them further. Can I do anything else other then adding chemicals?

Here is an article that will help you.

The topsoil may slow them but they will continue to grow up through it.
