    Think its Dichondra. Best application for month of October? Anyone? Heres a closeup. There is also another grass with tops growing towards the belgium blocks. Can anyone ID that too?

    OK.. it has a single stem and grows very tightly in the lawn. The leaves 1/2" or less. They are heart or kidney shaped, has jagged edge, veins, it is also very thin. It sort of reminds me of the herb cilantro if young. The tallest stem I found is 2". I looked up dollarweed, pennywort, dichondra, and creeping charlie. I dont think its any of those due to its tiny size. Help.

    Hmmm after looking harder and zooming I think I see some white clover starting to grow

    I can't really tell on the stem but is it in the middle of the leaf?

    Almost but not exactly in the center. It meets where the open slit part is. It has an edge like a cilantro leaf.
