Q. Creeping Charlie

I have this vine-like weed growing in my yard, which I have been told is called creeping Charlie. The vine grows white trumpet-like flowers on it. Does that sound like creeping Charlie? How do I get rid of this weed from my yard and not ruin my grass? If it is not creeping Charlie, how do I identify the vine so I can remove it safely from my yard?

Q. Killing Creeping Charlie

Our neighbors do not care for their yard at all – haven’t even planted grass. So much of their weeds come into our yard. We do a good job of control with everything but creeping Charlie. Any ideas?

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

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.
