Violets are a broadleaf weed that can be controlled through a program of regular lawn maintenance--watering, fertilization and mowing. Violets are rarely a serious problem in properly maintained lawns. Thick, healthy grass prevents the violets from spreading as profusely as they would if the lawn were neglected. Low maintenance lawns are frequently invaded by violets. Once the grass has become healthy and is actively growing, treat with an all-purpose broadleaf herbicide labeled for use on violets in your grass type.
