Having tried several commerical products without success, for the past two years, I've tried to dig each individually to clear them from lawn and garden beds. This year they're overtaking 2 sections of lawn and are so thick I can't dig without destroying the sod..somebody HELP!!

    In what lawn grass are they growing? That will determine what product to use.

    I have the same problem along with a viney type weed the wavy round leaves that has almost taken over the back yard. Our grass is very thin shade grass.

    Walter: lawn is Zoysia..(hope I spelled that correctly) ....Cheryl: the wild violets grow in full sun, total shade or any combination..I've thankfully not had the viney type weed (YET)..

    Good news...Ortho Chickweed & Oxalis killer can be used on zoyisa.....and it's death on a cracker for any wild violets you have.
