These plants are the worst to try to pull because even the smallest root will propagate and make new plants. The good news is that they respond to the same weed killers as other broad leaved weeds.
Control: Violets are easily killed using Ortho Weed-B-Gon or Bayer Advanced All-in-One Lawn Weed Killer, but you will need to spray several times to get the newly sprouted plants, as the underground stems are unaffected by the weed killer. These chemicals will not damage the lawn grasses when used properly.
As with all broad-leaved weeds, spray in between mowing and do not water for several days.
