I've got some weedcover down with slate on top and some pots spread around. Each year around this time this type of green weed grows on top of the weedcover and covers the surface. Anyone know what it is and how to get rid of it without removing it all by hand?

    I have it too, it's easy to get rid of and comes up readily enough.

    Just pull it up or hoe very gently so as not to disturb the weed membrane.  However, if you can, wait till it finishes flowering as it is a magnet for hungry early pollinators.
