Cute weed?

shear_stupidity(9B)January 14, 2013

I live in Central Coastal Florida. This VERY low-growing, tiny groundcover showed up after my yard was dug up to build a pool, in an area that tends to stay shady or partly shady and somewhat damp. I'm tempted to let it grow, since it's in an area I hate to mow and weed-whack, but not sure if I'm inviting disaster.

It looks like Dichondra repens.
