wild strawberry (weeds)
How do you get rid of wild strawberry like weeds. It's like a ground cover that has taken over my flower bed.

If it's a perennial bed, you'll have to work at removing the rampant weed by hand. There isn't a herbicide that will kill the wild strawberry and leave your perennials unharmed. If you are very careful, you can spot spray the weed with glyphosate (Roundup), but be sure to use some kind of a barrier to protect your other plants from drift. (A piece of cardboard used as a shield or a coffee can with top and bottom cut out, perhaps.)
