    Liver wort due to compacted conditions. Anything else?

    Hi everyone. This is my 1st post on here. I am a complete novice gardener. I'm looking for help on how to get rid of this weed that is running amock in my garden. I don't know what it's called so I've posted some pictures. I'd be really grateful of any help.

    Hi Plant Pauper. Thanks for the info. Do you have any info on how to kill it? Which kind of weedkiller?

    I have loads of it on paths and gravel. I just scrape it off with a spade but it comes back. It's caused by the ground being all compacted underneath. If you dig over and try and get some aeration and condition into it that should help but it's a pain. As for the paviours...poke it out with a pointy thing!

    On the borders, just dig it in.
