Mind-your-own-business, babys tears or helxine is a weed of old lawns, usually in shade and not too far from the coast.

If shade can be reduced, this will help to boost the existing grass. Do not mow too tightly and feed the lawn as the grass competes better when fed.

Sulphate of iron or lawn sand does a reasonable job at knocking back the helxine while boosting grass growth.
