    Well this year i've been paying special attention to my own yard and the grass is doing great this year but today i went out to inspect the lawn and found a weed im not positively sure on what it is.

    Its almost like a kinda of ground cover the way it takes over, kinda roots in one spot and then spreads, has a little blue dot/flower at the end and leaves on the stem that get larger towards the bottem and more spread out, at the top the leaves are closer and smaller.

    Any diagnostice or cure would be greatly appreciated!!!

    Have to see it but it sounds like speedwell. If so you can by weed -b-gone from home depot and spot spray it.

    I must give Steve credit, I just copied his answer and went to weedalert.com and got the photo for you.
