Dichondra problem

I have a large backyard, and have been having an increasing problem for several years now with unwanted dichondra. I weed it out before it ever gets more than 4 leaves. I've never let one plant go to seed. But after the last rains we had in the last week, my yard is thick with new dichondra plants. They are all new sprouts which just have the first 2 leaves, and weren't there 10 days ago. No yards have dichondra lawns anywhere around me, and I'm stumped as to why it's growing as if it was planted intentionally--very thick, enough to grow a lawn! There are patches that are so dense they look intentionally planted! Any ideas?

Perhaps different kind of seedlings. Any chance of posting pictures?

Hi jean, I tried to post 2 pics, but have NO clue as to how. Is there a tutorial somewhere on this site?
I know nothing about photobucket. But it's definitely dichondra, and is coming in so thick, it HAD to have been planted! I have a malicious neighbor who uses roundup regularly in my yard, and I think he is the dichondra planter! Any chance of copying and pasting pics?

Aha, just as purple says.

Open "post a followup"
Look at the first line -- the one above your user name. You'll see a text box, with an active "browse" at the end of the line.
Click Browse, then go to the image on your computer.

hahaha! And here I am wanting to establish dichondra instead of my water and mowing intensive lawn! Wish I could come dig yours up and take it to my house!

I have the opposite problem, I want dichondra and flea beetles kill it completely every summer. Dichondras tough. You might have to use a broadleaf weed spray a few times to get rid of it all.
