What kind of Weed?

What kind of weed is low growing with redish colored petals in center and greenish colored leaf around the outside of plant? It is growing all over yard. Our home was just built last year; layer of topsoil was put down and weeds had grown before we moved into house.

Thanks for writing. I'm really sorry, but without being able to see the plant in person, I can't really identify it for you. You might check out our Weed Identification Guide, though! If you don't see it there, you can post a photo in our Share My galleries for us to take a look at. We may be able to help better after seeing it.
