How do I get rid of wild violets?
Please help, I need to know how to get rid of wild violets. We have them all over our 2 acre lot. They are now invading the flower beds. I have to get them out of many areas where they have taken over. I have pulled them out and I have dug them out, yet they still are multiplying. I put the plants I took out under tall trees where no grass grows any more. Any suggestions for removing them from flower beds and choking out other plants?

How can I get rid of wild blackberry bushes permanently?
I have tried everything, and they keep coming back. They are growing around the sides of my house and in the front planting bed.
For weeds in clumps like Wild Violet, Lily of the Valley or moss on paving stone:
1 cup bleach,
1 table spoon liquid dish soap
4 cups warm water.
I use a dollar store pump action sprayer
Everything you spray will be dead within 12 hours.
Environmentally better than chemical weed killers as the chlorine breaks down in sun in a few hours.
