Help!what are these weeds and how do I get rid of them?


So I moved into my house 2 months go, the day we moved in the garden was clear not a weed in sight. Within a few days I started noticing these strange weeds appearing just at the bottom in the gravel. I put down lots of weed killer and it didn't do anything at all. So after spending 2 days pulling them out, I then lay new gravel thinking that was the end of it. Again a few days later more appeared! So after pulling them out again and spraying more weed killer, they've come back with a vengeance and have now not only multiplied over my gravel area but have now started growing in my lawn. 

Can someone please tell me what they are and how I can get to of them please?

    Mare's tail I'm afraid. If you type it into the search box (top right) you'll be able to read the grim truth. image

    Oh No, not liking my odds with this one. Thank you for telling me what it is!

    Sorry to say but as far as UK weeds go, they are probably the hardest of all to eradicate image
