At first I thought this might be some species of galium but it has five petal flowers.

Maybe Mollugo verticillata? The pictures aren't the best, sorry about that.

Sure look exactly like Green Carpetweed (Mollugo verticillata) to me. It's a common weed here but it sure is easy to control.

That must be it then, thank you Dave! I tip my hat to you. Thumbs up

I was hoping for cleavers as I'm always looking to see if a 'weed' plant is useful and/or edible and it looks like this one is. http://www.eattheweeds.com/car...
