Notes:

this has started in a shady area of my yard and is spreading over the yard into sunny areas. What is it? I wouldn’t mind if it stayed in the shady area but really don’t want it over the whole yard. Help please.

    To my eyes there are two different plants in the first photos.
    The plant with smooth edge, kidney shape leaf, maybe Dichondra?

    The plant with heart shape, maybe wild violet?

    Flowers can help confirm or rule out these suggested genera. Check out Walter link for control methods for both. Best wishes!
