I have a ground creeping weed that spreads like crazy. small green leaves with purple/blue flowers. any idea what it is and how to control. so far the only way is to dig it up. it's in my flower beds and lawn.

The weed sounds suspiciously like henbit which is a broadleaf weed and you should be able to get control of it with applications of a broadleaf weed killer containing 2,4-D. Apply according to label directions. Best wishes with your eradication project!
