Help identifying weed

This weed has been slowly taking over my yard, started a little bit last year, seems to be getting worse this spring. I have some weed-b-gone for southern lawns, but since I'm not sure what it is, I don't know if it will help or not.

There are a couple other weeds in the photo, but I'm referring to the lighter green leafed weed.

Probably violets. Does it have a purple flower?

RE: Help identifying weed

There are no flowers on this weed, it's just the green leaves.

This is dollar weed

RE: Help identifying weed

I did some searching for dollarweed and found some photos showing dichondra also. It looks more like dichondra to me, and it also said that dollarweed leaves have a serrated/scalloped edge. The leaves in my photo appear to have a smooth edge.

Could it be dichondra?

RE: Help identifying weed

It is definitely a dichondra..
