This is common Liverwort. It is a non-vascular plant, so herbicides may not be effective. Boiling water will kill them off. Pour boiling water 2 or 3 times per day for a week or so, and it will get rid of them. Your soil will be perfectly clean for planting, immediately, after treatment, unlike with herbicides!
