Without seeing the weed, I'm only taking an educated guess, but it sounds like hairy vetch, a spreading perennial weed difficult which is to get rid of. It froms thick patches of matted leaves and flowers in the springtime. A broadleaf weed killer such as 2,4-D should control the weeds. Spot treatment early in the spring before the plants go to seed will give the best control Hand digging is also an option. Be sure that hairy vetch is once of the weeds listed on the product label before purchasing the product. Best wishes with your project!
