I have a vine that I think is Dichondra growing into my lawn and it is taking over. Is there any way to get rid of it or stop it from spreading any further without damaging my lawn or fully replacing it.

You'll really want to have that weed identified before proceeding. You can take a sample to your local Master Gardener Clinic, cooperative extension office or well staffed nursery for positive i.d. If it is dichondra, it can be controlled with a broadleaf weed killer that contains 2,4-D. Ortho Weed-B-Gon MAX Weed Killer For Lawns will take care of broadleaf weeds without harming your lawn. Be sure to apply according to label directions.
