Please help! This weed is taking over all sides of my yard, and quickly. I live in Fairbanks, Alaska and the extremely cold winter we experience has no bearing on it. It blends with my lawn, creeps into my flower beds, and encroaches into my neighbor's yard, too. We have a very short growing season here and work very hard to beautify what we do have, and this weed is taking over.

Does anybody have a solution? Thank you.
